Smoking Causes Coughing (Fumer fait tousser)

This screening took place on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at 7:00 pmYukon Theatre

Quentin Dupieux, king of ideas that transcend our ordinary experience of reality, presents a tale about the difficulties of being a superhero, grilled barracuda, and the operator of an agricultural threshing machine.

What's this film about? A group of superheroes who uncannily resemble the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers many of us will remember from the TV. They are called the Tobacco Force, and they kill supernatural monsters from the cosmos using nicotine and carbon monoxide although, good role models that they are, they never touch cigarettes themselves. Since they are burnt out from saving the world, their boss – the perpetually drooling rat Didier – tells them to go and relax in the woods. By the campfire they try to frighten each other with scary stories. 

In French with English subtitles.
