Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #75. Quentin Dupieux’s DAAAAAALI !
A true original who never seems to be running out of zany ideas, we learned back in November that Quentin Dupieux was at it again. Featuring Alain Chabat, Anaïs Demoustier, Pierre Niney, Gilles Lellouche, Edouard Baer, Pio Marmaï, Jonathan Cohen, Hakim Jemili, Agnès Hurstel, Jérôme Niel, Marc Fraize and Didier Flamand, Dupieux’s twelve feature sounds Zelig-esque in scope. Atelier de Production’s Thomas Verhaeghe produced DAAAAAALI ! which splits its time in Paris and in Spain.
Gist: This charts the story of a French journalist who meets iconic, Surrealist artist Salvador Dali on a number of occasions for a documentary project which never gets off the ground.
Release Date/Prediction: We could see this being readied for a out-of-comp showing on the Lido.
