P'tit Quinquin
Mental disorder, disease, murder, and confounding evil. Not exactly the makings of a slapstick comedy, but this is Bruno Dumont we’re talking about. Known, by the few who dare to know him, as a seriously depressing and morose filmmaker, Dumont is so fascinated by the grotesque side of human nature, he can’t even make a comedy without putting the subject front and center. Dumont is back in television format with the mini-series “P’tit Quinquin.”

P'tit Quinquin
The common refrain heard over the past few years has been about how the world of television has offered a home to filmmakers who can't seem to get projects greenlit in the increasingly tentpole focused world of the major studios. But even we were surprised when the resolutely, hardcore arthouse filmmaker Bruno Dumont showed up on the Cannes Directors' Fortnight lineup with a police procedural/comedy mini-series, set to unspool in its entirety. And now the first trailer is here and it's definitely a side of Dumont we don't usually see.
