A hilarious superhero parody from absurdist filmmaker Quentin Dupieux. When disaster suddenly strikes, who better to save the world than a megalomaniac puppet rat and his gang of violent, out-of-control superheroes?

Following a gruelling fight against a diabolical turtle, a team of five avengers – known as the Tobacco Force – are sent to the woods to rebuild their team spirit. The five superheroes are named after the ingredients in cigarettes: Benzène, Methanol, Nicotine, Mercure, Ammoniaque. Their retreat works wonders, until they hear about a plot by Lézardin, the emperor of evil, to destroy planet earth. Together, they wind up in a hilarious battle for peace, full of bizarre twists and low-budget stunts in retro Lycra.


Prior to the screening of Fumer fait tousser, you will see the short film Shiny New World (2021, 8') by Jan van Gorkum from the Eye collection. This black comedy is a portrait of fifty-year-old Barry: he cleans up crime scenes where demons have wreaked havoc. While making a company film about his work, a normal working day for Barry goes bloody out of control.

In Eye and national cinemas.

Screened at prominent national and international festivals, yet never released in Dutch cinemas. Quite unjustly so, Eye Filmmuseum thinks, and so it has once again brought an exceptional selection of films from international festivals to the Netherlands.
