France | 2011 | Bruno Dumont
The latest inquiry into the sacred and the profane (and the feral and the spiritual) from French master Bruno Dumont (Humanité)is a characteristically spare, laconic, gorgeously lensed work. Set in and around the coastal dunes of northwestern France, the movie focuses on a mysterious drifter who meets a young girl fleeing her abusive stepfather. The vagrant seems half devil, half saint; he can kill with impunity, but also work miracles. Essential viewing! “A secular invocation…An honest account of groping for grace.” –The Village Voice.
