Director’s Note

As I finished editing Deerskin, I realized that all my films are comedies profoundly tormented by death.

My work will always be permeated by the same obsessions, the same “signature”, the same sense of humor. From the beginning, I felt I was ploughing a furrow that was entirely my own: deformed realities, infinitely twisted human relationships, surrealist portraits of our society, profound and childish fantasies…With Mandibles, which fits the furrow perfectly, I’m finally abandoning death to focus on life.

In Mandibles, I want to glorify the comic duo Gregoire Ludig and David Marsais, for whom I wrote it, by filming their complicity and playfulness with absolute benevolence. Mandibles is above all a genuine and sincere comedy about friendship. It’s also, thanks to the presence of a giant fly at the heart of the story, a fantasy film.

– Quentin Dupieux
