DEERSKIN (LE DAIM) is off kilter comedy best described as humour that is a cross between Jacques Tati and Yorgos Lanthimos. The film is irrelevant and features comedic set-ups like a talking deerskin jacket and a killing fan blade.
The protagonist of the story is an odd enough character, Georges (Oscar Winner Jean Dujardin of THE ARTIST) that goes mental with his ultimate goal in life to be the only one to be wearing a jacket. To achieve this aim, he has to kill of or steal from anyone with a jacket. In addition, with a gift of a video camera, he poses as a filmmaker.
When staying at a hotel after his wife leaves him, he meets an equally weird bartender, Denise (Adele Haenel0 who ends up being his film editor. Director Dupieux (the little seen RUBBER) has the talent of observing the simple hilarity from everyday human behaviour. And like the Jacques Tati comedies, LE DAIM can be watched again and again.
