A beautifully absurd and deadpan delight from the director who brought you Rubber. Recently divorced Georges (Dujardin) decides to blow his all his money on his life’s one true, unwavering desire: the vintage deerskin fringe jacket of his dreams. He blissfully hits the road with nothing but his new coat for company until his deep infatuation leads him to fantasise about it being the only jacket in the world. After meeting an aspiring film editor moonlighting as a barmaid (Haenel), he sets about documenting his murderous mission to rid the world of all other jackets in this extremely funny and unpredictable gem from Quentin Dupieux, a master of surreal comedy.
