Hors Satan (2011)

Directed by: Bruno Dumont
Country: France

Plot: A miracle reveals an unseen side of a village loner.
Quick comment: Those who have watched the turkish “Kosmos” (2010), directed by Reha Erdem will instantly perceive the similarity on the storyline followed there. Darker but not so loose than its homologous, "Hors Satan" strongly relies on the chosen country landscapes and actor appearances to create Dumont's depressive mood. Always concerned in shocking us somehow, this feature represents the eternal battle between good and evil wrapped in supernatural ambiguity. Bewildering but not original.
