Quentin Dupieux | US/France, 2012 | 94 min.

Dolph Springer wakes up to find that his beloved dog, Paul, has vanished. In a desperate attempt to get Paul (and his life) back, Dolph embarks on a spiritual journey to reconnect with his pet and encounters a series of characters whose lives he drastically alters including a promiscuous pizza delivery girl, a jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, and an eccentric pet detective. Director Quentin Dupieux’s absurdly comic world is uncompromisingly unusual, breaking almost every known narrative cinematic convention and culminating in what critics champion as “textbook surrealism...definitely worth your attention.”
