"On n'est pas la pour philosopher Carpentier"..."Il faut ȇtre serieux"
13 March 2017 | by Un ZievereirSee all my reviews

As usual Mr. Dumont delivers an enchanting intimate portrait of French Flanders. Just as brutal as his other films, but sprinkled with the observations of the lighter side of humanity. Intensely rich in character and human fallibility, the humour to be found in life is portrayed expertly. In fact it feels so real that it is as if the comedy emerges accidentally, and from the actors not the script.

As in "l'Humanité" the colourful detective negotiates his way through the haze of evil that hangs over the Côte Opale. And, as always, that is combined with a strong Christian spiritual presence, and the perceived monotony of human life.

Exceptional casting with non professional locals always gives his work a closer, more realistic hard edge but this time (probably due to its colourful humour) has made it far more palatable and less painful. Although some would believe this to be too ridiculous to be taken as a realistic portrait, Flanders and Wallonie do in fact have an abundance of individuals who are similar in their unflinching eccentricities and colour (indeed many are forces of law and order.) Absent are the brutal anti-sensual sex scenes, and instead a gentler, calmer love exists between certain characters.

Comparisons with Bresson and Charlie Chaplin may be perhaps inevitable for some, but he has achieved the same as with all his masterpieces up to this point, albeit with a lighter eye on his world. I think he is one of the few consistently magical contemporary European directors.
