We’ve worked with Greenwich Entertainment, the distributor of DEERSKIN, to make it possible for you to see the film — and your ticket helps support the Belcourt. For $9.99, you can purchase a ticket for DEERSKIN — and you’ll have a 3-day / 72-hour window to watch it. Greenwich Entertainment will share a portion of your ticket payment with the Belcourt. Please note that this arrangement, in these unprecedented times, means we’re unable to offer member pricing. Thanks for your understanding and support. And if you’d like to consider an additional donation to the Belcourt, we’d be most grateful. You can do so here. Note: You can watch on your desktop, tablet, smartphone, Chromecast or AirPlay. If you prefer to watch on another device, check here for more information.
Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (THE ARTIST) is a recent divorcee in the midst of a midlife 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’s mistaken for an independent filmmaker by an adventurous, enterprising bartender (Adèle Haenel, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE) who happens to be an aspiring editor with natural production instincts. The two forge a tenuous alliance and team up to collaborate on a film directed by the visionary deerskin jacket.
“Funny and pointed…. It’s really just one joke, scrupulously played out at feature length.” —A. A. Dowd, A.V. Club “A cross between BARTON FINK and HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER…. A warped fable of no great consequence, though the fact that it holds you, for 77 minutes, is a testament to the debauched rigor of Dupieux’s filmmaking.” —Owen Gleiberman, Variety “DEERSKIN, as bat-s**t crazy as it is, marks the filmmaker’s most cohesive, and funniest, feature yet.” —Alex Saveliev, Film Threat “Jean Dujardin is dressed to kill…. A story of a fetish, of a codependent relationship between an inanimate object and a swell-headed man that, like many of the most passionate love affairs, can only end in tragedy.” —Ella Kemp, Little White Lies
