La BM du Seigneur

6.6 / 10 (93)


In this western-like docufiction, the inhabitants of a trailer park play themselves. Fred and his friends are involved in dubious affairs: stealing expensive cars. Then a white stray dog brings about a complete change in Fred’s life. His surroundings have trouble understanding.

MUBI's take

An immersive plunge into a hermetic community largely unseen on film, Jean-Charles Hue fuses documentary and fiction to introduce his band of Yéniche travellers. Atmospheric and spiritually-inclined, La BM du seigneur plays like a loose-limbed variant on the metaphysical enquiries of Bruno Dumont.
