Yannick has a trailer

MUBI, the global streaming service, film distributor, and production company, has released the new official trailer for Quentin Depieux’s feature film Yannick, a satirical meta-comedy that explores the relationship between artists and audiences. The film premiered in Locarno International Film Festival 2023 and was awarded Best European Film. Yannick will stream exclusively on MUBI in the UK & Ireland from 5 April 2024.

DJ-turned-filmmaker Quentin Dupieux (Smoking Causes Coughing, Deerskin) returns with the Locarno-prize winning comedy YANNICK, an absurdist tale navigating the relationship between artists and audiences.

On a rare night off, car park guard Yannick attends a production of the play “Le Cocu.” Dissatisfied by the performance, he hijacks the show and demands to be made the playwright in order to get his valuable time back. Despite the ridicule, he is determined to prove even a car park guard can create good entertainment.

Shot in secret in just 6 days, Dupieux serves up his signature slice of satire in this quick-fire meta-comedy reflecting on his own relationship with audiences and critics.
