Philippe Mars (by François Damiens) is a reasonable man in an unreasonable world. He is trying to be a good father, a kind ex-husband, a nice colleague, an understanding sibling. Unfortunately, his little world goes out of its planned orbit. His son is turning into a hardcore vegan, his daughter into a pathological overachiever and his sister is selling oversized paintings of their naked parents. Finally, Jérôme (by Vincent Macaigne), a mentally unstable colleague, arrives on the scene to carry Philippe’s life utterly out of control. News From Planet Mars is a somewhat different family film, which uses black humour, brilliant cast and a pinch of surrealism to offer a fresh look at family values.
