Who is going to save the world when it’s going to be destroyed? A team of five avengers – known as Tabacco Force – is forced into the forest to work on the teamspirit. The five superheroes are named after the ingredients of cigarettes: Benzène, Methanol, Nicotine, Mercure, Ammoniaque.

Together they end up in a hilarious battle for peace, full of bizarre stories and low budget stunts in retro lycra. Quentin Dupieux (Deerskin, Mandibules) is the king of nonsense. He packed his comedy with references to the past (Power Rangers, Creepshow, San Ku Kai, Halloween). A film that is just as ridiculous as it is funny, an encouragement not to take life too seriously.

With a fantastic cast, including Gilles Lellouche (Farewell, Mr. Haffman), Anaïs Demoustier (Anaïs in Love) and Adèle Exarchopoulos (Mandibules).
