Dir. Bruno Dumont, France, 1997, 35mm, 96 min., French w/ English subtitles

Balanced somewhere between the sublime and the sinister, Bruno Dumont’s debut film follows a group of aimless youth in the north of France as they spiral downward toward the unthinkable. Led by the troubled Freddy, whose affection for a local girl sets off a disturbing series of events, the gang of disaffected teenagers inhabit a desolate village where they remain trapped by their own self-imposed ignorance. With touches of Robert Bresson and Italian neo-realism, Life of Jesus is a stunning work of cinematic poetry.
