A mysterious, absurdist romcom, Olivier Godin’s latest brings together a singing bone, an actor with a gorilla arm, a spectacularly vulgar female cop and a cluster of other characters in search of love. After Les Arts de la parole (FNC 2016), he takes storyteller Michel Faubert’s collection of medieval fables as a pretext for joyously trashing cinematic conventions.
