Directed by Bruno Dumont, Twin Cities Exclusive
“A wonderfully weird and unexpectedly hilarious murder mystery.” —Variety
Fresh from the Cannes, Toronto, and New York film festivals, French filmmaker Bruno Dumont returns to the screen with a new, wild comedy set in rural Northern France. A hopeless police inspector and his comical sidekick (with the effect of a modern day Laurel and Hardy) take up an unconventional and provocative search for a missing body, while being menaced by the story’s central figure—a little mischief-maker named Li’l Quinquin. Using humor, Dumont also touches upon complicated issues of immigration, racism, jealously, and family rivalries. 2014, DCP, in French with English subtitles, 200 minutes.
