Playing Dead (Je fais le mort)

A film by Jean-Paul Salomé

Both comedy and thriller, Playing Dead centers on Jean (François Damiens), a floundering, 40-year-old, out-of-work actor who has hit rock bottom. At the unemployment office, his counselor offers a rather odd proposal: he can help the police reconstruct crime scenes by standing in for the dead victim. As he takes a leading role in a sensitive murder investigation at a Megève ski resort, Jean’s obsession with detail both impresses and annoys the investigators. “A clever murder mystery backed by the hilarious François Damiens.” —The Hollywood Reporter
