Coincoin and the Extra-Humans
Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Bruno Dumont. 2018, 211 mins. Digital projection. With Alane Delhaye, Bernard Pruvost,Philippe Jore and Lucy Caron. Beginning where Li’l Quinquin left off and adding elements of science fiction and zombies to the mix, Coincoin and the Extra-Humans finds Bruno Dumont and company perfecting their Tati-esque universe of visual and audial gags to a T, while keeping Quinquin’s signature undercurrent of political dread very much alive. Commandant Van der Weyden (Bernard Pruvost) and Carpentier (Philippe Jore) return to investigate the sudden appearance of piles of extraterrestrial black goop around their coastal town. Meanwhile a teenage Coincoin (Alane Delhaye)—né Quinquin—continues his punkish mucking about with friends, all of whose heretofore childish bigotry has ominously blossomed into far-right organizing.
