French director Bruno Dumont's sequel to 2014’s Li’l Quinquin is another absurd and macabre adventure featuring aliens, refugees and madcap cops, centred around an investigation into some seriously whiffy business. Presented in two parts, both of which will be available to rent on QFT Player.
As gobs of ectoplasmic gunk fall from the sky without warning, the now-teenaged Coincoin (Alane Delhaye) must again evade the spluttering police captain Van der Weyden (Bernard Pruvost) and his deputy Carpentier (Philippe Jore) 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 materialisation 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 and Invasion of the Body Snatchers into a deadpan fever dream, wholly singular and undeniably Dumont.
Coincoin and the Extra-Humans consists of four episodes, split into two parts.
