„Kidding“ ran 2018 in the festival cinema program.

Comedy and tragedy have always been close together in the imaginative, playful works of French director extraordinaire Michel Gondry. It's no different with "Kidding," his first foray into TV, for which he also brought along his "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" star Jim Carrey. He plays Jeff Pickles, who as Mr. Pickles is an icon of U.S. children's television, but is so thrown off course by a personal family tragedy that he has trouble reconciling his real life and his TV persona. With serious consequences also for his psychological well-being and for the tone of this series, which catapults us from one state of mind to the next, from sky-high to deathly sad.

Jim Carrey reunites with "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" director Michel Gondry to deliver a harrowing performance as grief-stricken presenter of a children's television show, whose life begins to crumble.
