"Killer. Style."

In this black comedy of middle-aged masculinity gone awry, Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) is a recent divorcée who becomes obsessed with a vintage fringed deerskin jacket that begins to exert an uncanny hold on him. Set in a sleepy French alpine village, Le daim sees the protagonist falling into the guise of an independent filmmaker and befriending a trusting bartender and aspiring editor (Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady on Fire), who becomes his collaborator on a movie that will document a surprising new goal he sets himself.

Plot summary from IMDb: A man's obsession with his designer deerskin jacket causes him to blow his life savings and turn to crime.
