Young journalist Judith has one big wish: to interview Salvador Dalí! However, there are some obstacles like never-ending hotel hallways, still water, a crashed camera, and, of course, the diva Dalí himself. But Judith doesn't give up! Dalí, on the other hand, increasingly despairs because of time paradoxes, his old alter-ego and the never-ending dream of a priest.
The same is true of all of Quentin Dupieux's wackily inventive creations, such as RUBBER and SMOKING CAUSES CAUGHING: engage and be amazed! As magically the icon of surreal painting manages to make time melt, the master of surreal film unhinges all causality and, as usual, all viewing habits. A Dalí painting literally comes to life and our poor Judith has to deal with five incarnations of the Spanish eccentric. DAAAAAALI! is a dream of a film! A feverish vision full of weird details and piled up craziness.
