News From Planet Mars
Directed by Dominik Moll • Produced by Diaphana • With François Damiens, Vincent Macaigne, Veerle Baetens, Léa Drucker
Philippe Mars is a reasonable man in an unreasonable world.
He’s trying to be a good father, a kind ex-husband, a nice colleague, an understanding sibling… But the planets have not been exactly aligned in his favor lately. With his son turning into a hardcore vegan, his daughter into a pathological overachiever and his sister selling oversized paintings of their naked parents, it seems to our ever-so prudent Philippe that everyone around him is starting to behave more and more erratically…
When his more than over the top colleague Jerôme accidentally chops off his ear and then moves into Philippe’s apartment, things start to go from bad to insane for our hero.
