Alamo Drafthouse distribution label Drafthouse Films has acquired North American rights to Quentin Dupieux's surreal Sundance entry "Wrong."
Described as an electronic musician-turned-director/writer/editor/cinematographer/composer, Dupieux also directed the 2010 Cannes short "Rubber," (video below). “'Wrong'’s demented universe is a perfect fit for our brand of artfully unusual films,” says Drafthouse Films founder/CEO Tim League, “and Quentin proves once again that he is one of contemporary cinema’s true fearless visionaries who refuses to play by the rules.”
"Wrong" is about a Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick of "Reno 911") and his search for his missing dog, helped by spiritual guide Master Chang (William Fichtner); they meet various characters he meets along the way, including "a promiscuous pizza delivery girl, a jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, and an eccentric pet detective" (Steve Little, "Eastbound And Down"). “I love dogs and I am fascinated by the relationship between people and dogs,” says Dupieux. “ I get along with dogs better than I do with people! Wrong is an homage to this special love between people and dogs.”
Drafthouse plans a limited theatrical and VOD release for 2013. While the album’s soundtrack will be available August 27 from Because Music, free downloads co-composed by Dupieux, AKA Mr. Oizo, and Tahiti Boy are here:
