NEWS FROM PLANET MARS
Comedy | 101 mins (subtitled) | Australian Premiere
Directed by Dominik Moll Philippe
Philippe Mars is a reasonable man in an unreasonable world. He’s trying to be a good father, a kind ex-husband, a sympathetic colleague and an understanding brother ... but the planets have not been aligned exactly in his favour lately. His son is turning into a hardcore vegan, his daughter into a pathological overachiever, and his sister is selling oversized paintings of their naked parents. The ever-so prudent Philippe sees everyone around him behaving more and more erratically. Then, when his more than over the top colleague Jerôme accidentally chops off Philippe’s ear, and then takes up residence in Philippe’s apartment, things start to go from bad to insane for our hero.
Writer director Dominik Moll (With a Friend Like Harry…) unveiled his weird and eccentric fifth feature film NEWS FROM PLANET MARS at this year’s Berlinale, where it was selected to premiere in competition.
