LA LOI DE LA JUNGLE
By Antonin Peretjatko, 2016, France – 99 min - Comedy
With Vincent Macaigne, Vimala Pons, Pascal Légitimus, Mathieu Amalric
In this absurdist satire, France's Ministry of Standards dispatches a middle-aged intern, Châtaigne, to French Guiana, to oversee the development of Guyaneige, the first indoor ski track in Amazonia. There, he meets a beautiful intern at the National Forestry Office named Tarzan and what ensues is a surreal journey through the Amazon jungle, with absurdist bureaucratic disasters, an aphrodisiac mishap, and a cannibal encounter.
Director Antonin Peretjatko uses the ministry's goal of increasing white, wealthy tourists as a metaphor for centuries of French imperialism and colonialism. He takes up the challenge, with astounding ease, of broadening the horizon of comedy with a film that mixes several genres with poetic freedom and a sarcastic portrayal of the absurdity of the conformism that dominates the present-day.
In French with English subtitles
Next screening: October 15, stay tuned!
