2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 10 – Bruno Dumont’s France

2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 10 – Bruno Dumont’s France

A Cannes Film Festival staple, Bruno Dumont returns to the competition for a fourth time with a media satire that was clearly for acquired tastes. Slack Bay (Ma Loute) was his last time in comp, and excluding his mini-series P’tit Quinquin which shored up at the Directors’ Fortnight in 2014, he is best known for Camera d’Or winning La vie de Jésus (Directors’ Fortnight) 1999’s L’humanité (Grand Prix and a double Best Performance prize for his non-professional actors) and 2006’s Flandres.


Another film that is yay or nay on our panel, we’ve found high scores of 4 from several critics and complete dismal from the rest. Where hovering around the 2.5 area as grades are still coming in.
