Deerskin (2020) - Rotten Tomatoes


Deerskin (2020)



Critic Consensus: Led by a daring performance from Jean Dujardin, Deerskin finds writer-director Quentin Dupieux working in a more accessible -- yet still distinctive -- vein.

Movie Info

In this black comedy of middle-aged masculinity gone awry, Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) is a recent divorcee who becomes obsessed with a vintage fringed deerskin jacket that begins to exert an uncanny hold on him. Set in a sleepy French alpine village, he falls into the guise of an independent filmmaker and befriends a trusting bartender and aspiring editor (Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady on Fire) who becomes his collaborator on a movie that will document a surprising new goal he sets himself.

Despite playing an odd, mad villain, Dujardin (best known for his Oscar-winning performance in "The Artist") remains dangerously charming.

Georges' descent into madness is never as immediately compelling as it is theoretically clever.

Quentin Dupieux's glum absurdist fable gives absurdism a bad name. It's a facile notion inflated to feature proportions.

We learn very few specific details about this somewhat monotonous guy, and yet that vagueness makes him and his quest more relatable.

April 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Brisk, brief, and blissfully strange, "Deerskin" could only have come from the possibly alien brain of France's Quentin Dupieux.

For a long while, "Deerskin" idles affably in first gear, but its guilelessness is a ruse.
