Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
At once glacial and gripping, profound and pretentious, Bruno Dumont's L'Humanite is an ostensible police procedural that has far more on its mind than the usual machinations of a whodunit. The movie's grandiose intentions are advertised in its very title. Clocking in at just under two-and-a-half hours, this ponderous and, at times, maddening film threatens to buckle under the weight of its ambition and purpose. Capturing human activity with Swiftian frankness, Dumont sketches an unflattering portrait of people as little more than animals. This outlook is perhaps best exemplified by the startling sexual imagery in the movie: his sex scenes are drained of prurience and filmed as sweaty, unattractive, and purely animalistic acts. The unnerving rigor of his gaze extends beyond the sexual. As tactile a film as one will ever see, the movie captures physical details with startling immediacy, from the quiet rustle of grass on a windy day to the glistening patch of sweat on a man's neck. If Dumont's technique leaves little room for ambiguity, his story certainly doesn't. With a police officer-cum-holy innocent as its unlikely protagonist, the crime story trudges to a perplexing conclusion best not discussed here. Suffice to say that the ending is more suggestive than conclusive. For all the head-scratching it might inspire, the cryptic final frame is perfect in its own way, lacing a parting frisson of mysterious transcendence to Dumont's brutal and taxing vision of humanity.
