SMOKING CAUSES COUGHING, a wildly inventive new French comedy from
Quentin Dupieux (MANDIBLES, RUBBER, both released by Magnolia). The film,
which had its world-premiere in Cannes’ Midnight section, follows the misadventures of
a team of five superheroes known as the Tobacco Force – Benzene (Gilles Lellouche),
Nicotine (Anaïs Demoustier), Methanol (Vincent Lacoste), Mercury (Jean-Pascal Zadi),
and Ammonia (Oulaya Amamra).

After a devastating battle against a diabolical giant turtle, the Tobacco Force is sent on a
mandatory week-long retreat to strengthen their decaying group cohesion. Their sojourn
goes wonderfully well until Lézardin, Emperor of Evil, decides to annihilate planet Earth
