Quentin Dupieux and his French eyes depicts the Americans customs in a such edgy way. I thought it was impossible for me to described their behaviors, Dupieux did it, transforming useless subjects into a deep but superficial matter, or how to look interesting by talking non sens bullshits, using parable and corporal expressions full of manners. Dupieux laugh at the codes and norms established by the movie makers. It's a demonstration that movies aren't about money, but creativity, alas in the land of the braves, success = cash, a lot of if possible. On the other hand, I supposed that if he opts for the U.S.A it is probably because in France = it's no going to be possible and if it is, French don't like success. He prefers to remain "anonymous", a good compromise between freedom of making art and that so-called French touch that only exist abroad ! It could be slightly presumptuous, but I think we have here a mix of Alex van Warmerdam and Jens Lien altogether. As Bob Marshall screamed at the end of the movie : you're a genius !!
