Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (THE ARTIST) is a recent divorcee in the midst of a mid-life identity crisis. In search of a new life and look, he ditches his past in a roadside petrol station and encounters a vintage, fringed deerskin jacket with influential supernatural powers. He relocates to a quiet French alpine village where he is mistaken for an independent filmmaker by an adventurous, enterprising bartender in a sleepy saloon (Adèle Haenel, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE) who happens to be an aspiring editor with natural production instincts. The two forge a tenuous allegiance and team up to collaborate on a film inspired by the visionary deerskin jacket.Written by

Oh deer, you made me laugh
New movie with Jean Dujardin is not for everyone.
Let me explain: in modern world where comedy genre is near death some thing starting to mix up. This picture is mix of comedy, thriller with a little bit of suspense.
Scene is great, autumn is filmed perfectly, Jean Dujardin looks exactly how he need to be.
Soundtrack is pretty good.
This story could be a nice tv series like Fargo, but director had other plans.
So, if you are good with not ordinary scenario and got a dark sense of humor - this movie is exactly what you need.
Plus, you will be waiting for an ending with so much interest like never before.
This is new moral step in comedy genre, like maybe "The Naked Gun" or "Futurama" once was.
