From the director of “Rubber” and “Deerskin” comes this horror-comedy that’s bloody, absurd, and sports a Super Sentai influence in all the best ways imaginable. The Tobacco Force hasn’t been working as a cohesive unit as of late, despite their shared ability to use the negative energy of tobacco as a weapon to – in their own words – “suffocate our adversaries until they die”. The team – Benzene (Gilles Lellouche), Methanol (Vincent Lacoste), Nicotine (Anais Demoustier), Mercury (Jean-Pascal Zadi), and Ammonia (Oulaya Amamra) – is sent off to a week-long retreat where their only missions are to relax, reconnect, and realign their teamwork. And just in time too, as the world’s greatest villain, Lizardin, has a new plan to destroy all of mankind…but not before dinner! If this all seems outright bonkers, just know the film also features an outright fit of jokes from start to finish. Such notable bits include the Tobacco Force’s rat puppet chief being both a womanizer and absolute ladies’ man, the team never taking off their costumes – even when sleeping – and the downer attitude of the team’s suicidal robot companion, Norbet 500.
