Fumer fait tousser

Especially comforting in these awkward pandemic days of 2022, we’ll be receiving not one, but two servings of chicken soup for the soul via Mr. Oizo. Quentin Dupieux‘s tenth feature began production in September with a demented cast comprised  of a good helping of Dupieux alumni. In Fumer fait tousser we have Adèle Exarchopoulos, Anaïs Demoustier, Gilles Lellouche, Vincent Lacoste, Benoît Poelvoorde, Alain Chabat, Doria Tillier and Blanche Gardin. Chi-Fou-Mi’s Hugo Sélignac who has developed a rather impressive track record in the past decade produced the comedy – which should please former smokers, anti-smokers and avid smokers alike.

Gist: As the group of vigilantes known as the “tabac-forces” is falling apart. To rebuild team spirit, their leader suggests that they meet for a week-long retreat, before returning to save the world.

Release Date/Prediction: We think that this could be ready for Cannes but they’ll hold off until Venice.
