The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq

Film poster (domestic)


A French comedy-drama directed starring directed by Guillaume Nicloux and starring author Michel Houellebecq. It tells the story of how Houellebecq is kidnapped by three men during a promotional tour. The film was inspired by a rumor that occurred when Houellebecq was on a book tour for The Map and The Territory. The film premiered at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival in the Forum section. 

The poster was inspired by ransom and kidnapping. The collage aesthetic mixes with different textures to create a comic feeling, accented with the diagonal type. Below are some additional postcards.
