Full Festival Trailer for Dupieux's Hilarious Giant Fly Film 'Mandibules'
"Never saw them, never met them." Memento Films in France has revealed the first full festival trailer for the film Mandibules, the latest from wacky French musician / filmmaker Quentin Dupieux. This just premiered at the Venice Film Festival last weekend to mostly rave reviews (here's mine) and it's going to hit the Sitges Film Festival next this fall. Two simple-minded friends discover a giant fly in the trunk of a car and decide to domesticate it to earn money with it. But it's about more than just that. Definitely a Dupieux concept and it's hilarious. One of my favorites this year. The film stars Adèle Exarchopoulos, Grégoire Ludig, Bruno Lochet, Coralie Russier, India Hair, David Marsais, with Dave Chapman as "La Mouche" (aka The Fly). This is a good taste of what the film offers, and I'm big-time fan of it already. Enjoy.
