COMEDY / FRANCE / 2021 / 74MINS / M
The first of two festival features from critically acclaimed director Quentin Dupieux (Mandibles, AF FFF20), comes Incredible but True. Rated four-stars by The Guardian, the film offers a unique, witty, exploration of the challenges of modern adulthood – from breaking into the property market to the troubles that come with ageing.
When Alain (Alain Chabat, #Iamhere, AF FFF21) and Marie (Léa Drucker, Roxane, AF FFF20) decide it’s time to settle into their quiet life in the suburbs, the two are immediately underwhelmed by the run-down homes on offer. Just as the pair are about to throw in the towel - Alain and Marie stumble upon a mysterious tunnel in the cellar of their latest
inspection. No ordinary tunnel, the couple find that there is more to this home than meets the eye and for such a modest price, they would be crazy not to take it - or so they think...
Delightful and seriously funny, watch as Alain and Marie’s attempt at a sleepy, suburban life turns into an absurd journey full of chaos and surprise. With an all-star comedy cast including Benoît Magimel (Peaceful, AF FFF22) and Anaïs Demoustier (Anaïs in Love, AF FFF22) – enjoy Dupieux’s most recent ludicrous tale of suburbia gone-wrong on the big screen.
Coming in at a tight and talky 74 minutes, “Incredible but True” is a sweetly absurd time-travel comedy that coats its lunacy in a touching poignancy– NY TIMES
