Trivia

Each time Octave Parango (played by Jean Dujardin) is in a bad trip, Frédéric Beigbeder appears. It certainly reffers to the fact that Beigbeder worked himself in an advertising agency as Octave in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When Octave's version of the Starlight commercial is shown on television for the first time, the blob of yogurt on his eyebrow disappears and reappears between takes. See more »

Quotes

Octave Parango: Everything is bought. Love, Art, planet earth, you me. Especially me. The man is a product like any other, with a limit sell by date. I am advertising, I am one of those that make you dream the things you will ever have. Blue skies, never ugly chicks, perfect happiness and retouched in Photoshop. You think I embellished the world? lost, I screw it up. Everything is temporary. Love, Art, planet Earth, you, me. Especially me

Psycho fun
15 September 2008 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

This is definitely not a mainstream movie.

If you are finding yourself ever and ever trying to go deeper in peoples minds and thoughts, this film is made for you.

If you are a creative being, such like a programmer or designer, or simply wants to know what is going on in the world of high creative common this film is made for you.

If you like psych, weired, mess people you will like this film too.

But if you are not feeling addressed now, it could happen that you will feel this movie as a waste of time.

Have fun
