Quentin Dupieux, best known as Mr. Oizo, announces release date for upcoming film, ‘Deerskin’
The multifaceted talents of Quentin Dupieux, also known as venerated Ed Banger beatsmith Mr. Oizo, are returning to theaters. Titled Deerskin, the creatively absurd film is written and directed by the French artist, and is pinned for a theatrical UK release on July 16.
Deerskin stars Jean Dujardin as Georges, a recent divorcee whose infatuation with a newly acquired deerskin jacket drives him and his French alpine village into utter madness. Like much of Dupieux’s work, Deerskin‘s premise is a bit out of left field, but if the film is anything like his musical creations as Mr. Oizo, this unique approach will also give the release most of its charm.
This isn’t Dupieux’s first foray into film, as Deerskin follows in the slightly surrealist skid marks of full-length features like Rubber, the oddball story of a murderous car tire, and the more recent black comedy, Keep an Eye Out! Mr. Oizo has also stayed busy with longtime partner Ed Banger Records, starting out 2021 with “All Wet” featuring Siriusmo. Watch the film’s official trailer with English subtitles below.
