France, 2014, Bruno Dumont

A comedy from Bruno Dumont (Humanité, Hadewijch), France’s foremost proponent of miserablism and heir to the ascetic spiritual striving of Robert Bresson? Stranger things have happened, especially in Dumont’s miracle-laden movies. Li'l Quinquin, originally a four-part miniseries for French TV, is set in sea-swept, sparsely populated northern France (the rural setting of most of Dumont's films). There two provincial cops try to solve a series of bizarre murders while a mischievous moppet (li'l Quinquin) looks on. Cahiers du Cinéma named this the best film of 2014. “A wonderfully weird and unexpectedly hilarious murder mystery.” –Variety. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. Blu-ray. 200 min. Special admission $11; members and those age 25 & under $9; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. This film supported by a generous grant from Maison Française de Cleveland.
