Absurdist bad boy Dupieux (Rubber, Wrong Cops) returns with an outrageous spoof of super-hero action movies starring a who’s-who of French prestige cinema. After a devastating battle against a diabolical turtle, a team of five antismoking avengers known as the Tobacco Force (and resembling the Power Rangers) is sent by their lecherous, talking-rat boss on a mandatory retreat to strengthen their decaying group cohesion. Their sojourn goes wonderfully well until Lézardin, Emperor of Evil, decides to annihilate planet Earth.

“Batsh*t crazy… Dupieux’s signature style of subplots, actor cameos, and hilarity.” - Deadline

Official selection: Cannes Film Festival
