Coincoin and the Extra-Humans / Coincoin et les Z’inhumains (N/C 12+)

Bruno Dumont’s sequel to 2014’s Li’l Quinquin, which signified his bold break from social realism into madcap experimentalism, revisits its ragtag characters in a new absurdist epic that reckons with xenophobia in northern France. As gobs of ectoplasmic gunk fall from the sky without warning, the now-teenage CoinCoin must again evade the spluttering Police Captain Van der Weyden and his Deputy Carpentier as they zoom through sparse pastoral vistas, on the hunt for clues. Although they’re utterly ill-equipped to connect these splats to the sudden materialization of identical twins around town, their moments of prophetic lucidity are as surprising as they are revealing. Across this expansive canvas, CoinCoin and the Extra-Humans channels Jacques Tati, Antonin Artaud, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers into a deadpan fever dream, wholly singular and undeniably Dumont.

Cast: Alane Delhaye, Bernard Pruvost, Philippe Jore, Julien Bodard, Lucy Caron, Alexia Depret, Marie-Josee Wlodarczack, Jason Cirot, Nicolas Leclaire, Priscilla Benoist
