Portrait

Rubber by Léo Soesanto

Even if RUBBER is only Quentin Dupieux’s second film, he has already developed a very very personal universe for ten years via his career as an electro musician (alias Mr Oizo) and music videos’ or commercials’ director. How to describe it? Empty the space he is shooting, fill it with an odd element, like the wrong piece of a puzzle. The hero in the video of his hit Flat Beat, it’s not him but a yellow teddy bear. His first feature film Steak gets all what we could expect from the duo of comedians Eric & Ramzy or a high school comedy. Why? I’m still naïve enough to believe that there is still room for unconscious and format-free films claims Dupieux. The too formatted films, structured as emotional machines, annoy me. I like the idea of doing a film on a living tire, with no narrative structure nor dramatic stakes. It’s possible! Also, The budget was very limited : I conceived the script, taking into account our means, and I like working like that a lot. Thus, RUBBER is the story of a serial killer tire that refers to his youth: Around the age of 12, my father’s video camera made me feel like filming. Then I discovered horror movies in video clubs and I instinctively needed to remake some fragments at home. And why a tire? I can’t answer questions starting by why. The introductive monologue of my film includes exactly 8 why. Life is full of mysteries… Why don’t we see the air around us? Why a tire? This is the same question.
