Absurdist director Quentin Dupuix is back with another Bat Shaw Crazy film, Smoking causes cough (Smoking makes you cough) The film centers on a group of vigilante superheroes called the Tobacco Force. Like him piercing all insanity Rubber (A serial killing car tire), Deer skin (Where a man hears his deer leather jacket talking to him), or Mandibles (A movie about a giant fly), there is always a hidden message at the bottom of the surface. At the moment, he is addressing cigarettes, smoking and stress. I mean, stress can be caused by smoking, and smoking can cause coughing. Logical to me. * Glass *
With their tight blue cheetahs and white helmets, the tobacco forces are kicking asses and taking names to save the world. After all, they hate smoking. At the beginning of the film, the team is engaged in a fierce battle with a giant foam turtle. The five members are benzene (Gilles Leluche), nicotine (anise demaustier), methanol (Vincent lacost), mercury (gin-Pascal jadi), ammonia (olaya amamara), all chemicals present in cigarettes. By combining their powers, they give the form of tortoise cancer. And when it is overloaded with cancer, it explodes into a mess of blood and intestines.
Chef Didier, the leader of their giant foam rat who looks like a master splinter and is constantly drilling, gives them another assignment. This time, they must fight the dangerous lizardine (Benoit Poelvorde), who wants to destroy the world. But since Mercury had problems during the last battle, the rat boss believes the team needs to retreat to build solidarity and morale.
At this point, the film turns to metaphor to prove his point. Tobacco forces sit around campfires, telling stories of thinking about benzene helmets and what happens when someone is alone with their own destructive thoughts. The second story is told by a fish caught in a nearby lake. When they start cooking fish, it reveals a story about stress that causes a lack of clarity and how it can confuse the situation.
Smoking causes cough A parody within a parody that originated in comedy and Super Sentai television shows (e.g. Strong warrior Or VR Troopers) 80s and 90s. It has its subplot, actor cameo and signature style of comedy which creates a fun midnight feature. It’s a welcome break that exists in the ear from heavy-handed movies. Dupuix’s stories know how to take extreme violence and turn it into satire and comedy, often using inanimate objects to reflect the flaws of humanity.
Is Smoking causes cough His best work? No, but the message here seems sincere that sometimes something happens and we find ways to decompress and sometimes those methods can cause coughing.
