Acidic and neo-dada humor

Wrong is the third feature by Quentin Dupieux. Extremely radical in his approach, Quentin Dupieux goes against the lavish toy that is filmmaking, proposing a real guerrilla style cinema, and he's the only captain on board. Dupieux succeeds in bringing an oddness to the screen without resorting to bizarre framing or absurd camera movements. Going against the wave of French and international auteur cinema, Quentin Dupieux claims to "keep making liberated films, which are more or less funny with naive and amateur scripts, and that portray worlds parallel to ours, while remaining as stupid as ours".
Quentin Dupieux is a self-taught filmmaker/musician born in 1974. He made short films as a teen and sold one of them to Canal+ when he was 19. Simultaneously, Quentin Dupieux started making electronic music under the pseudonym Mr. Oizo. He released his first album in 1996. In 1999, he directed a series of commercials with Flat Eric, a yellow puppet. He sold more than 3 million copies of Flat Beat, the music that he created for that ad campaign. In 2007, Quentin Dupieux wrote and directed his first feature-length film, STEAK. Will follow RUBBER (2010), WRONG (2011), WRONG COPS (2013), REALITY (2014) and KEEP AN EYE OUT (2018). He regularly releases electronic music albums. His latest film, DEERSKIN, opens La Quinzaine des Réalisateurs at Cannes in 2019.
We have a tendency to rationalise too much in films, to not take into account the absurd aspects of life. Our existence is made up of random events, of unexplained and unexplainable things.
