Octavio Alzola - Princesa


Two friends and one giant fly. After reading this I felt an instant attraction towards this movie. In my opinion MANDIBULES was one of the highlights in the strange and brilliant 77th edition of the Venice Film Festival. Directed by Quentin Dupieux, Grégoire Ludig acts as Manu, a French Dude that drags his best friend Jean-Gab (David Marsais) to a surreal adventure full of comedy, a buddy-movie that runs like clockwork. The high pitch speaker Agnès (Adéle Exarchopoulos) deserves a special mention as a brilliant cook with brain damage, suspicious of Manu and Jean-Gab but unable to uncover their stupid plans. Beside the laughs, this film shows true and loyal friendship. Toro!
