  • The Life of Jesus

    1997. Written and directed by Bruno Dumont. With David Douche. A new chapter in the tradition of humanist filmmaking, Dumont’s remarkable debut caused visceral reactions and divided critics with its stark and direct visual language, and complex, uncompromising, and unfettered vision. In this story of a bad boy’s thorny path to redemption, Freddy, a naive, taciturn young man with epilepsy and no real future, commits an act that destroys his last shred of humanity. This apparent end-of-the-line act becomes the beginning of a quest for grace—a quest made completely believable by Dumont’s clean, organic approach to his material.
