In Camille Claudel, Bruno Dumont placed a tired-faced Juliette Binoche at the center of the frame. The French filmmaker seems to have switched thirds with P’tit Quinquin, a made-for-TV comedy set in a rural town. His last feature starts like a by-the-book crime story: with a strange murder in a small place in northern France. From this premise, Dumont turns everything into satire with the help of some incompetent cops, a group of little troublemakers led by Quinquin and a completely eccentric family. No one is safe under Dumont’s ruthless eye. Humor runs amok, but we shouldn’t let the tone or the mix of genres fool us: the TV project from the director of Hors Satan isn’t that far from his earlier work. The shots are still centripetal, and here, the mise en scène of bodies in the space, one of the central themes in Dumont’s cinema, becomes as stark as it is comical. VK
