Film Screening. Coincoin and the Extra-Humans (Coincoin et les Z'inhumains)

5 July 2019
21:30–01:30

DESCRIPTION

Bruno Dumont's topical and absurdist comedy returns to the young protagonists of his earlier mini-series L'il Quinquin (2014). Now grown up, they get even more perplexed by the crazy world around them.

The charming slacker Quinquin, now Coincoin, still lives in the French countryside—the periphery that seems cut off from the rest of the world and where everything is possible, from shocking anomalies to divine miracles. This time, Coincoin and his crew start suspecting that an alien invasion has taken place, and, like in a Hollywood sci-fi classic, extraterrestrials steal human bodies to remain unnoticed.

One of the biggest contemporary auteurs, Bruno Dumont (Slack Bay, Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc, Flanders, Camille Claudel 1915) paints another portrait of "the other France:" a huge and densely populated upside-down world where time is slow and non-linear. Juggling genres from sci-fi and detective to slapstick and comedy of intrigue, Dumont offers a clever comment on the challenges of our time, including the rise of the ultra-right, the integration of migrants, and the normalization of same-sex marriage.

The film premiered at the 71st Locarno Festival and was listed second on Les Cahiers du Cinema's list of the best films of 2018.
