When everyone around you got sick, and you yourself don't have a very good opinion of yourself, the best way out is to contact some crazy person. Firstly, against its background you will look more profitable, and secondly, you can always reject conventions and, together with a new acquaintance, pretend to be just as crazy. At least that's what the director of the Franco-Belgian comedy News from the Planet Mars Dominique Moll thinks.|
The hero of his new film, Philippe Mars (Francois Damiens) is a failure on all fronts. He is not respected at home, he is not appreciated at work. Where to go to such an inactive and melancholy person? Unless you find support in the face of a crazy newbie colleague, full of exciting ideas on how to brighten up the leisure time for ordinary IT people. For a start, you can blow up a couple of new incubators, where the poor chickens are fed for slaughter ...
For the most part, European critics liked the picture. Despite the seriousness of the stated topics, such as the loneliness of an adult, different types of madness, depression and the absurdity of the world around, this kind of existential comedy turned out to be very subtle and piercing. So it can be recommended to viewers who do not like laughter for the sake of laughter, but irony, masterly camouflaging issues that are relevant to each of us.
