France, 2021. Directed by Quentin Dupieux. 77 min. PG
From the twisted mind of Quentin Dupieux (RUBBER), MANDIBLES is an absurdist romp that follows simple-minded friends Jean-Gab (David Marsais) and Manu (Grégoire Ludig). After stealing a beat-up Mercedes in order to deliver a mysterious briefcase to an unknown recipient, the friends find more than they bargained for when they hear a buzzing, thumping noise coming from the trunk of the car. When they open it, they find a gigantic fly trapped inside. Manu and Jean-Gab decide to forgo their current mission and instead focus on training the fly to carry out robberies for them, in the hope of making a ton of cash. A hilarious mash-up of buddy comedy and road movie, with a sci-fi twist, MANDIBLES is a wild and surreal film about friendship, big dreams, and bigger disasters. Presented in French language with English subtitles.
“Mandibles is a rollicking, rambunctious tequila-dream of a movie.” – Xan Brooks, The Guardian
