A recent divorcee (Jean Dujardin) becomes obsessed with a vintage fringed deerskin jacket that begins to exert an uncanny hold on him. Set in a sleepy French alpine village, he falls into the guise of an independent filmmaker and befriends a trusting bartender and aspiring editor (Adèle Haenel) who becomes his collaborator on a movie that will document a surprising new goal he sets himself.

"A hilarious and twisted festival amuse-bouche with tremendous cult appeal."

— Bradley Warren, The Playlist

"At barely over an hour, Deerskin packs quite a punch, and is bound to get under your skin."

— Alex Saveliev, Film Threat

"Brisk, brief, and blissfully strange, "Deerskin" could only have come from the possibly alien brain of France's Quentin Dupieux."

— Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"Deerskin is funny, weird and original; it features two charismatic stars, and it does everything it needs to do in only 77 minutes."

— Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"Despite playing an odd, mad villain, Dujardin (best known for his Oscar-winning performance in "The Artist") remains dangerously charming."

— Candice Frederick, TheWrap

"A comedy that progresses with such matter-of-fact deadpan illogic that you may not even notice its full-on swerve into horror and madness until it's too late."

— Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

"Dujardin is the sort of leading man who likes to mix it up, and in "Deerskin" he gives an adventurous downbeat performance that tosses vanity - and sanity - right out the window."

— Owen Gleiberman, Variety
