Smoking Causes Coughing - Fumer fait tousser
The adventures of a curiously low-rent band of superheroes—the Captain Planet-esque Tobacco Force, who swear they’re actually against smoking—are merely the starting point for this gloriously goofy new outing from the relentlessly imaginative Quentin Dupieux (Mandibles, Rendez-Vous 2021). After the five fighters defeat a gigantic turtle in the middle of a desert, their chief (a puppet rat) has bad news—metadata indicates that their group cohesion skills are disastrous—and sends them off on a retreat to fix the problem. Once they arrive, in lieu of self-improvement exercises, the campfire stories begin, setting into motion a shaggy-dog series of wild, unpredictable comic sketches performed by an all-star cast that includes Adèle Exarchopoulos, Vincent Lacoste, Gilles Lellouche, Anaïs Demoustier, Alain Chabat, and one very erratic robot. A Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing release.
