Smoking Causes Coughing, dir. Quentin Dupieux, France 2022, 77 min., French with English Subtitles.

After a devastating battle against a diabolical turtle, a team of five avengers – known as the Tobacco Force - is sent on a mandatory retreat to strengthen their decaying group cohesion. Their break goes wonderfully well until Lézardin, Emperor of Evil, decides to annihilate planet Earth… But will they repair their relationship in time for a final epic battle?

From visionary director Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Deerskin) comes an absurd and darkly hilarious superhero movie unlike any other. Starring Gilles Lellouche, Vincent Lacoste, Anaïs Demoustier, Jean-Pascal Zadi, And Oulaya Amamra.
