One day, on a whim, Marc decides to shave off the mustache hes worn all of his adult life. He waits patiently for his wifes reaction, but neither she nor his friends seem to notice. Stranger still, when he finally tells them, they all insist he never had a mustache. Is Marc going mad? Is he the victim of some elaborate conspiracy? Or has something in the worlds order gone terribly awry?
"an intriguing study of identity, marriage and madness" Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"La Moustache," the first feature by novelist Emmanuel Carrere, begins as a comedy, but grows darker and darker by the frame. It's like a Hitchcock thriller filtered through the mind of Austrian firebrand Michael Haneke, who gave us Caché (Hidden)." V.A. Musetto, New York Post
