Screen can reveal the first trailer for French director Quentin Dupieux’s new film Incredible But True ahead of its world premiere at the Berlinale as a special gala screening on Friday (Feb 11).

The comedy reunites Dupieux with French star Alain Chabat, who previously appeared in the director’s 2014 film Réalité. He co-stars opposite Léa Drucker as a couple who move to a quiet suburb and then find a mysterious tunnel in the cellar of their new home that turns their lives upside down. Other cast members include Benoit Magimel and Anaïs Demoustier.

It is Dupieux’s tenth feature after comedy Mandibles, which enjoyed a buzzy out-of-competition premiere at Venice in 2020, and horror-comedy Deerskin, starring Jean Dujardin, which opened Directors’ Fortnight in 2019. It marks Dupieux’s first time in the Berlinale.

It is lead produced by Mathieu and Thomas Verhaeghe at Paris-based Atelier de Production who previously produced Deerskin and Dupieux’s 2017 film Keep An Eye Out.

Arte France Cinéma, and Belgium’s Versus Production and Voo & Be Tv take co-producer credits. Diaphana Distribution pre-bought France and will be releasing the film theatrically on June 15.

Wild Bunch International (WBI) and WTFilms are co-handling international sales.
