“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.
