Product Description

Avant-garde drama directed by Bruno Dumont. A nameless outsider living on the fringes of society (David Dewaele) develops a close bond with a nameless young woman (Alexandra Lemâtre). He acts as a guardian to the girl as the film progresses, killing the people she claims are tormenting her and making her life unbearable. Set along the northwestern French coast, the film touches upon aspects of good and evil, spirituality and isolation.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: French ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Documentary, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Bruno Dumont's latest film Hors Satan is beautifully shot in a protected area on the coast of Northern France, where the director has been living most of his life. Hors Satan engages in a unique way with the landscape to emphasize the inner life of the film's characters, a world of sand dunes, woods and marshes. By the Channel, along the Côte d'Opale, near a hamlet with a river and a marshland, lives a unusual guy who struggles along, poaches, prays and builds fires. A girl from a local farm takes care of him and feeds him. They spend time together in the wide scenery of dunes and woods, mysteriously engaging in private prayer at the edge of the ponds, where the devil is prowling... SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Cannes Film Festival, ...Outside Satan ( Hors Satan )

5.0 out of 5 stars A gust inside the god.A wind. 28 May 2013
By technoguy VINE VOICE
This strange film is set on the northern French coast around Calais.A vagabond(David Dewaele)lives in the wilds of nature,with a small fire to keep him warm.His companion,a teenage dark-haired virginal goth(Alexandra Lematre), walks with him everywhere.They are both lost in a mirage of naturalism,supposedly beyond both good and evil,'hors Satan'. There is no back-story.The man gives to people what they want:to the young girl he is a protector,refusing to have sex with her and killing the guard who harasses her,he's also killed her step-father for abusing her at the start of the film.Police make enquiries about the murders.The goth lives with her mother.

To a hitch-hiker he brings sexual bliss,so she is frothing at the mouth.For the mother whose daughter is possessed he drives out the demons by raping the possessed young girl.He moves around his territory like a hunter-gatherer, but the territory is spiritual and he seems to commune with nature,kneeling,taking in the land and sky.He canknock at any door and get a bite to eat,as the people who live around here trust him.His young companion gets raped and dies and he mysteriously takes her body out into the landscape and lays it in a certain way and leaves it.The strange ritual is a form of resurrection.He is a holy fool or shaman,a phallocentric worshipper of nature.

What do we make of Dumont's purpose here? He has taken the character who was marginal in his last film,Hadewijch, but was pivotal as the natural man in saving the central character from committing suicide, and he's made him the central character in this film,which has no music; you hear only the sounds of nature,breathing,walking,the wind, leaves,water and birds.The characters have no names.This is a new world of primitive,mythological fantasy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Figures In A Landscape 11 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dumont makes sound movies. That is not to say that they are worthy but that they are infused with sound, a sound-scape that forms the architectural bones of his fleshy visuals. Here we hear breathing; life is manifest in this most intimate detail, the movement of air from within and without. The French title 'Hors Satan' is translated on screen into English as 'Outside Satan'! How about 'Without Satan' or 'Satan Without', either of these might be preferable?
Immersed immediately in the, now familiar (?) world of Dumont’s northern France landscape the first five minutes of 'Hors Satan' draws us into milieu of post industrial peasant life, taciturn, at once alienated and yet connected to the rural world, a world not of ordered pasture and hedgerow but rather of rusted corrugated iron sheets and furrowed brows. The leaden skies weigh heavily on the land stretched across the screen as figures shift both into the depth of the frame and across its geometrical surface. There is a wonderful moment 50 minutes into the film when the young woman walks toward the vanishing point of the screen, her vertical figure passing through the three horizontals of sand, sea and sky. Dumont is as deft at utilizing this landscape form as Godard is albeit to different effect.
In this, his sixth feature, Dumont allows us to observe, his usual narrative position, the story of an ‘outsider’ befriended by an other, a couple estranged, made strange by the circumstances of intimated child abuse and silent compromise. The young woman (Alexandre Lamaire), with trumpet player lips and failed goth hair looks through weak eyes at a world awry.
