Smoking Causes Coughing

Quentin Dupieux

France
2022, 80'

Any connection to the Power Rangers is no coincidence, but in this delicious and slightly sickening spoof the tone is decidedly French, and our troupe of heroes’ powers are all tied to the harmful chemicals in tobacco. After a victorious fight, they go on a team retreat and entertain themselves by telling horror stories by the light of the campfire. The end of the world, however, does not wait for anyone’s retreat.

The world is in danger and the only group capable of defending it is… in need of team building. Smoking Causes Coughing is the most recent film of Quentin Dupieux, where a Power Rangers type group with the powers of tobacco (but anti-smoking) called “Tobacco Force” is forced by their boss, a mutant rat that constantly drools, to do a weekend retreat. They must learn to be a team again but first they must learn to be friends and nothing like a camp-fire in the woods, midnight stories and A LOT of blood to bring them closer. (Rui Mendes)
