Incredible but true was presented out of competition at the last Berlinalein February 2022.
Alan (Alain Chabat) and Mary (Lea Drucker) move into a pavilion. A hatch located in the cellar will upset their existence.
Our review :
In his 9th feature film, Quentin Dupieux has chosen, always through the prism of thehumor and some comedyto explore the themes of passing time, aging, the obsession with rejuvenation, against a background of transhumanism.
Incredible but true, it’s the story of Marie and Alain, a couple who buys a house in which there is a mysterious trap door. In the basement of the house, what looks like a manhole reveals something incredible but true. And Quentin Dupieux plays with our nerves because the revelation, by the real estate agent in charge of the sale of the house, on what this famous hatch contains, is distilled by pieces according to flashbacks. It takes a long time to know the end word.
Alain, has a best friend (his boss), Gégé (Benoit Magimel), a very unpleasant guy, also with an incredible but true secret. Probably the funniest part of the film. A film full of deliciously absurd dialogues, as Dupieux knows how to do, which also contains a tribute to the movie theater by Buñuel and whose soundtrack, very pleasant, comes from a single old vinyl record by Jon Santo.
In which theaters near me is the film screened? Incredible but true ?
