目を疑うようなブラック行為&発言連発の強烈コメディ『トッド・ソロンズの子犬物語』はJ・デルピー、D・デヴィート、E・バースティンら名優たちが大集結!


アメリカをさまよう1匹の可愛いダックスフントと、その飼主となる冴えない人々の姿を描いたブラック・コメディ『トッド・ソロンズの子犬物語』が2017年1月14日(土)より、ヒューマントラストシネマ渋谷ほかにて公開となる。


『ハピネス』『ストーリーテリング』などで、様々なタブーに触れながら人生のバカバカしさ、人間の愚かさをブラックユーモアたっぷりに描き、観る者に爆笑と気まずい気分を提供してきたアメリカン・インディペンデント界の鬼才トッド・ソロンズ監督がメガホンをとる本作。出演にはジュリー・デルピー、ダニー・デヴィート、エレン・バースティンら名だたる名優たちが名をつらねており、ソロンズ監督がはなつインパクト大の強烈キャラを熱演しているのも見どころとなっている。

死んだ目の成金オバハン・ディナを演じるのは、なんとジュリー・デルピー。J.L.ゴダール、リチャード・リンクレイターをはじめ数々の有名監督に起用され、自身も監督、脚本をこなし作り手としても多才ぶりを発揮するフランスを代表する名女優だ。


そんな彼女が本作で演じるディナは、ダックスフントの最初の飼い主になる病弱な少年レミの母親。豪華な一軒家に住み、車はベンツと何不自由ない暮らしをしているがその瞳は虚構で満ちている...。さらに、ダックスフントの身を案じ「火葬って何?」と訊く我が子に「オーブンでサッと焼くのよ」と心無いセリフを吐くなど、性悪ババアっぷりを炸裂させる場面も。また、ダックスフントに去勢手術を施そうとするが、そこで驚愕の作り話でレミを説得するシーンもかなり強烈だ。

続いての"残念ピープル" を演じるのは、ダニー・デヴィート。シュワルツェネッガーとコンビを組んだコメディ『ツインズ』、『ジュニア』で人気を博し、『バットマン・リターンズ』の名悪役Mr.ペンギンなどヤバい役どころも最高。『パルプ・フィクション』、『エリン・ブロコビッチ』など名作のプロデュースも務める才人だ。


シリアスな演技もコミカルな演技のお手のもの彼が演じるのは、業界から干され気味の映画脚本家で、映画学校の講師をしているものの、学校でも居場所がない崖っぷちのおっさん、シュメルツ。かつて手がけたB級映画だけが心の拠り所。映画会社のエージェントからも、学生からもナメられまくって絶望したシュメルツは、ダックスフントを使ってとんでもないことをやらかそうとするが...。

最後に登場するのは、アメリカ女優の頂点でもあるアカデミー賞女優のエレン・バースティン。『アリスの恋』で史上3人目となるアカデミー賞とトニー賞のダブル受賞を達成。その後数々の映画賞を受賞し最近では『インターステラー』や大人気海外ドラマ「ハウス・オブ・カード」などにも出演。博士号を持ちアクターズ・スタジオ学長という彼女が本作で演じるのは"死ぬほど面倒くさい婆さん"。


ダックスフントに「癌」という名前をつけたり、孫娘に「昔ヌードモデルをしていた」など聞きたくもない話をわざわざする偏屈な老婆ナナ。Mr.マリックのようなデカいサングラスをし、孫娘に身も蓋もない話をするその姿は正直サングラスを外すまでエレン・バースティンとは気づかないほどだ。

冴えない人々、でもどこか憎めない人間模様は新春初笑にぴったり。ブラック・コメディ『トッド・ソロンズの子犬物語』は2017年1月14日(土)より、ヒューマントラストシネマ渋谷ほかにて公開

愛猫&愛犬が写真に写りこんだ瞬間【おもしろフォト集】
That cat is up to something, and we want no part of it.
WHOA
"What, what is this?"
"You'd rather take a picture of a straw than take one of me?
"Took a picture of baby Avery and dachshund Milo tunneled behind her to get in the picture." -Submitted By: Diane Lenier
Watch out, baby!
Who's bombing who?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
"Oh sorry, wrong room."
"What are you reading?"
At least someone is trying to stop these from happening.
Nothing like a perfectly timed tail.
The beer is poison!
"Why are you taking pictures of butts?"
It's cool, he's the new boom mic operator.
"My turn next!"
Just really happy to be here.
At least that last guy is in the picture.
This cat's great-grandchildren are probably in this slideshow as well.
"Turn left on Sunset."
"I want to sit on the chair."
Sneak attack is underway.
Stopping inappropriate Facebook photo uploads since 2008.
How is he even doing that with his neck?
What are you doing here?
Also: "Soon"
Talk about a third wheel.
The other cat REALLY doesn't like glamour shots.
"Um, I think someone forgot my Fancy Feast."
"Do I smell fish?"
"Um, a little help?"
What is this contraption.
We're assuming that this guy was attempting to take an underwater selfie.
"Ignore me!"
He does not approve.
His night vision is perfect for interrupting hipster photo shoots.
He stood on that pinecone to get in this photo: commitment.
"Sorry, did I ruin your postcard?"
Still part of the family.
Maybe planned, still terrific.
"My husband and I were taking our border collie, Jack, out for his daily beach run and play. (This) is the photo of him being photobombed. I didn't see the dog until I saw it on the screen after the photo was taken."- Submitted By Laura Hancock
"I was trying to take a picture of this cute Waterbuck calf, when it's mom stepped in to see what I was doing to her baby...LOL." Submitted by: Karen Stephens

In our experience cats really do hate driving.
This dog is huge!
Where was this cat standing?

This goat would clearly lose hide-and-seek.
That cat takes itself way too seriously.
"I was taking head shots for a friend when Albert kept entering the frame and posing. This is the shot when my friend had had enough." - Submitted By: Kathlyn Horan
These cows would have been such a good background otherwise.

All the dog that's fit to photograph.
Aflac has to be responsible for this.

"An animal photobomb taken in the "off leash" portion of Austin's Town Lake hike and bike trail. This is actually our dog, presumably telling us how she really feels about the new baby!" -Submitted By: Joanna
Just wait for it.
"Well, hello!"
"I make this look easy."
The lion doesn't even know he is posing, he's just naturally suave.
This dolphin really deserves credit for making this picture great.
"Dog park fun (Jack, Marley, and Kiana) getting their picture taken when a great dane decides to make a cameo!!" -Submitted By: Brynn Fesler
"I'm part of the family too. Why shouldn't I be in the picture?"
"Another animal is getting more attention than me!"
Maybe this was planned?
"Oh, you were taking a picture?"
Just a man, a woman, and their horse.
Even dogs can enjoy 3D.
The photographer is holding a steak.
This donkey has a place to go.
HEEYYYY!
Quick window bomb before flying away.
Just gonna sneak in here.
Cool boat, dude.
Pretty scenic, huh?
Bet he didn't see that coming.
Is this cute or just incredibly creepy?
Finally worked!
Nope, FCC cat doesn't approve of this.
Get a room.
Down here!
He knew what he was doing.
Sweet picture, dude.
Classic.
HEY!
This probably ended well.
Don't get out of the car.
Double Bomb.
That couch looks pretty comfy.
Dude, pipe down over there.
What's he planning?
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
Up close and personal.
You're never too young to get photobombed.
Cute couple.
C'mon, ditch the girl and come play with this ball.
Not just any goat bomb, but a sarcastic goat bomb.
Sup?
Cool speech, bro.
Nice costume, kid.
Cheeeeeese!
This way's better.
A fun-filled day at the park.
What are you guys up to?
Seriously?
Poor dog never even saw it coming.
BEHIND YOU!
Bears have needs, too.
Don't let the hair distract you from the bomb.
C'mon, I'm cute too.
