Regissørens beskrivelse: "In MANDIBLES, I want to glorify the comic duo Grégoire Ludig and David Marsais, for whom I wrote it, by filming their complicity and playfulness with absolute benevolence. MANDIBLES is above all a genuine and sincere comedy about friendship. It’s also, thanks to the presence of a giant fly at the heart of the story, a fantasy film."
