Ciné : Hors Satan
Suffused with elemental images – fire, sky, sea, land – Bruno Dumont’s latest provocation concerns an unnamed drifter disturbing the balance in a seaside town.
The mysterious man becomes involved with a young villager, also nameless, but his interest lies more in protecting her from men he sees as predatory than anything romantic. A series of violent deaths in the area brings suspicion on the visitor from local police and residents, but others are drawn to him as a sort of Pied Piper figure. As increasingly strange events – some bordering on miraculous – occur, Dumont once again demonstrates his mastery of form and tone and his interest in both the sacred and the profane.
