SYNOPSIS

When simple-minded friends Jean-Gab and Manu find a giant fly trapped in the boot of a car, they decide to train it in the hope of making a ton of cash.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

As I finished editing Deerskin, I realised that all my films are comedies profoundly tormented by death. My work will always be permeated by the same obsessions, the same written “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 Mandibules, which fits the furrow perfectly, I’m finally abandoning death to focus on life. Mandibules 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 fantastic film.
