It is on Netflix that we can discover the new feature film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, entitled “BigBug” and carried by an attractive cast. A futuristic and satirical comedy where humans and indoor robots will clash, and which is revealed in a delightful trailer.
The new comedy of Jean-Pierre Jeunet shows itself
Jean-Pierre Jeunet, French director who offered unforgettable movies like Delicatessen, Alien, the resurrection and especially The fabulous destiny of Amelie Poulain, will be back soon with a new feature film, nine years later The Extravagant Voyage of the young and prodigious TS Spivet. Entitled BigBug, this film distributed by Netflix takes the form of a futuristic and satirical comedy where robots have taken power.
By 2045, the residents of a house all own indoor robots. But a revolt of androids breaks out outside. Indoor robots decide to lock up humans to protect them …
Entirely behind closed doors, it is therefore inside a house that we can see in this comedy human residents struggling with their robots. The trailer, recently unveiled, shows that Jean-Pierre Jeunet has not lost his attraction for the explosion of colors and his taste for the comedy that quickly draws towards horror. And as he is used to, he has once again assembled a top-notch cast.
Humans versus robots in BigBug
If the main plot of the film is not original, we trust the director and his actors to sublimate it. The cast consists in particular of the all-terrain actress Isabelle Nanty, the talented and too rare Claude Perron and François Levantal, but also Youssef Hajdi, Alban Lenoir, Elsa Zylberstein, Stéphane De Groodt and Claire Chust. We can already notice that BigBug advances in an open field notably by the anthology series Black Mirror, and therefore subscribes to it with the desire to offer a satire on our modernity, the development of artificial intelligence and “domestic” robotics.
BigBug will be on Netflix on February 11.
