Alain and Marie moved to the suburb house of their dreams. But the real estate agent warned them: what is in the basement may well change their lives forever. One of cinema’s most eccentric creators, Quentin Dupieux has a seemingly inexhaustible source of bizarre ideas on which he builds with comic brilliance.
Alain and Marie are viewing a house in a quiet suburb. The real estate agent warns them that what lies in the cellar will turn their lives upside down. Amazed and excited by what they discover, the couple decides to buy the property. When Alain’s brash boss and his girlfriend come over for dinner, the temptation to share the incredible (but true!) piece of information is strong. Marie, however, is determined to keep it a secret. She becomes obsessed with the cellar and cannot help going down there... One of cinema’s most eccentric creators, Quentin Dupieux has a seemingly inexhaustible source of bizarre ideas on which he builds with comic brilliance. He has once again generously given his cast an opportunity to play unforgettably quirky characters and really, what more fun could an actor have? Contributing to a satirical discourse on human obsession with their youthful performances, popular French actors Alain Chabat and Léa Drucker lend their relatable traits to the couple facing an unusual challenge. Anaïs Demoustier’s portrayal of a promiscuous young woman has just the right amount of intelligent lightness. And what can one say about Benoît Magimel’s unhinged performance other than: this is clearly an actor at the peak of his career, who is capable of anything.
