Georges threw his corduroy jacket in the toilet where it belonged. After all, that tired green thing couldn’t hold a candle to his newly acquired deerskin jacket—100% deerskin to be exact. With fringe. From Italy. Recently dumped and now impeccably dressed, Georges starts driving aimlessly. As just a man and his jacket, he finds himself in a provincial town, out of money and pretending to be a filmmaker on a solo shoot. Frequenting the local bar at night, Georges meets Denise, a bartender and wannabe editor, who agrees to help him with his so-called film. As Georges’ obsession grows, the jacket develops a voice of its own, confessing that it has but one dream: to be the only jacket in the world. Lucky for the jacket, Georges wants to be the only man in the world wearing one—and he has a plan to make that happen. “Rubber” (CIFF35) director Quentin Dupieux returns with twisted delight as DEERSKIN latches onto the absurd and wraps it in suede. Georges is out to make one killer fashion statement. (In French with subtitles) — D.O.
