Coincoin and the Extra-Humans (Blu-ray)
Directed by Bruno Dumont
In Bruno Dumont’s apocalyptically farcical follow-up to Li’l Quinquin (2014), Coincoin and the Extra-Humans, Quinquin (Alane Delhaye) is all grown up and goes by the nickname CoinCoin. He hangs out on the Côte D’Opale and attends meetings of the Nationalist Party with his childhood friend Fatso (Julien Bodard). His old love, Eve (Lucy Caron), has abandoned him for Corinne (Priscilla Benoist). When a strange magma is found near the town, the inhabitants suddenly start to behave very strangely. Our beloved heroes Captain Van Der Weyden (Bernard Pruvost) and his loyal assistant Carpentier (Philippe Jore) investigate and quickly begin to suspect an alien attack. The Extra-Human invasion has begun!
"Pruvost’s performance as Van Der Weyden once again binds everything together. He’s a captivating collection of physical ailments and bodily tics that feels like a combination of Jack Sparrow, Inspector Clouseau, and Charlie Chaplin – though such comparisons seem reductive when he, like the rest of this world, feels utterly unique."
"Coincoin’s parade of the nonsensical still possesses a delightful pageantry."
"Pruvost's performance reaches the heights of the great Peter Sellers. Coincoin is even better than the series that preceded it."
"There is much to enjoy in this deeply funny dissection of small-town oddness and the endlessly fascinating figures who populate it. Dumont offers audiences a confounding experience, but one that gets funnier and funnier with each passing moment."
