Academy Award® winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) is a recent divorcee in the midst of a mid-life identity crisis. In search of a new life and look, he ditches his past in a roadside petrol station and encounters a vintage, fringed deerskin jacket with influential supernatural powers. He relocates to a quiet French alpine village where he is mistaken for an independent filmmaker by an adventurous, enterprising bartender in a sleepy saloon (Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady On Fire) who happens to be an aspiring editor with natural production instincts. The two forge a tenuous allegiance and team up to collaborate on a film inspired by the visionary deerskin jacket.
- " It seems a perfectly natural move to become a serial killer, ready to dispose of anyone who refuses to hand over their jacket. " – John McDonald (Australian Financial Review)
- " It is the kind of wonderful gem one finds late at night at some film festival: never to be seen again, always to be fondly remembered, and met with incredulity when explained to other film enthusiasts year down the track. " – Grant Watson (Fiction Machine)
- " The two of them develop an engaging, twisted chemistry. To say more would be to spoil, except that the film is gorgeous to look at, and not actually about a jacket. " – CJ Johnson (Film Mafia)
