When I think "sequel to Big Lebowski," what I definitely want is a gestating-for-three-years-and-counting story focusing on Turturro's "Jesus" character.

Oh right, I totally forgot they were doing this.
"Why did she do it?"
"Why are you the fucking Police?"

I thought this already came out a couple years ago and I just missed it. I was just wonder about this movie somewhat recently.

Apparently this isn't a sequel to Big Lebowski. I think Jesus Quintana came from like some short Turturro had done, or a play, I remember reading something about it when news of this was around a few years ago; the character was pretty much someone Turturro had already played before that the Coen's put in The Big Lebowski. Basically it sounds like the same kind of situation as Esmarelda Villalobos in Pulp Fiction, how she's Gabriela Ponce from the Curdled short.

The weirdest aspect is that it's a remake of classic 70's French film (it launched Gerard Depardieu's career) which has *nothing* to do with The big Lebowski in terms of tone or themes, it's more a social comedy with a lot of provocative sexual situations (especially for its time). I don't really expect something "good" but I'm curious nevertheless.

I saw the original years ago. I'd heard this was a remake of a French film, but didn't realise it was that French film.


If you take a glance at the synopsis you can see how if this is a faithful remake it may prove... controversial.

That's just what I assumed living in France was like.

This project is so weird that I'm eager to see it, even though I'll probably hate the hell out of it.

Darn it.  I was hoping for Les Cousins Dangereux.
