La Moustache

DIRECTED BY - Emmanuel Carrère

LA MOUSTACHE is a surrealist tale about a man who shaves off his beloved moustache after asking his girlfriend whether she thinks it would be a good idea. After the final remnants of his formerly magnificent creation are washed down the sink the man stands back to see what friends and family think...only to find that none of them notice any difference in his appearance. A crisis of confidence ensues, with the man starting to doubt whether he ever even had a moustache in the first place.

Emmanuel Carrre's witty, elegant La Moustache is a deliciously unsettling, beautifully sustained enigma, a film of much beauty and flawless performances, especially from Vincent Lindon in one of his most demanding roles.

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

No matter how serious it becomes, however, La Moustache never forsakes an underlying attitude of high-style playfulness that recalls Hitchcock's cat-and-mouse romantic thrillers.

Stephen Holden, The New York Times

An intriguing study of identity, marriage and, perhaps, madness.
