In the new film by Quentin Dupieux, a team of five superheroes known as Tobacco Forces must fight Lizardin, a villain intending to destroy the world. With inevitable references to such series as Super Sentai or Power Rangers, Smoking Causes Coughing is a meata comedy filled with extravagant characters; among them, a tokusatsu turtle against which they fight at the beginning of the film and Chef Didier, the team leader, a drooling, adorable plush rat. For his eleventh film, his second from 2022, Dupieux resorts to some of the great names of contemporary French cinema (Gilles Lellouche, Vincent Lacoste, Adèle Exarchopoulos) and offers a delirious spectacle with plenty of visual ideas and scenes of playful violence that do not dilute a story full of nobility and warmth.
