Myndin fjallar um mann sem er heltekinn af rússkinsjakkanum sínum sem endar á því að eyða ævisparnaðnum sínum og að lokum leiðast út í glæpi til þess að bjarga málunum.
Stórkostleg gamanmynd sem hefur verið líkt við skrýtinni blöndu af kvikmyndunum “Barton Fink” og “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer”. Sýnd með enskum texta.
As a man obsessed with a vintage fringed suede jacket, Jean Dujardin rivets Quentin Dupieux’s loopy entertaining riff on cracked masculinity.
It was screened in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
“It’s like a cross between “Barton Fink” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” — the study of a desolate loner sunk into obsession, and the more we study him the more out there his obsession becomes. Yet the weirdest element of the movie is, paradoxically, the most normal: The central character (for long stretches, he’s the only character) is played by Jean Dujardin, the blazingly charismatic star of “The Artist,” the “OSS: 117” films, and (in smaller roles) “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Monuments Men.” Dujardin is the sort of leading man who likes to mix it up, and in “Deerskin” he gives an adventurous downbeat performance that tosses vanity — and sanity — right out the window.” – Variety
