QUENTIN DUPIEUX: BEING FLAT

What is it with Paris that people love it so much? Crazy prices? Pissed off people? One single language? Oh la la? There’s plenty of not-so-nice treats to mention and, anyway, here we are answering the call from the city of light, of love, where artists die and get buried and where everything seems possible.
Red Bull Music Academy, that place where you can jump from a plane on a kitesurf helped by the San Francisco philharmonic orchestra (well, maybe not), wanted to paint Paris, again. They did good; in their first five fiction shortfilms, they’ve achieved pearls like this piece directed by Quentin Dupieux, also known as (oh, yes!) Mr. Oizo. Along with that precious puppet, that yellow teddy bear made of love and cotton, that champion of expression, Flat Eric, absurd gets the points this Wednesday.
