Bruno Dumont - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (162 words)
Bruno Dumont (born 1958, Bailleul, France) is a French film director.
Dumont has a background of Greek and German philosophy, and corporate video.
Dumont has himself likened his films to visual arts, and he typically uses long shots, close-ups of people's bodies and storylines involving extreme emotions.
Bruno Dumont's Bodies (3065 words)
Central to Dumont's project is his faith in the power of cinema to return us “to the body, to the heart, to truth.” That faith secures his position in the lineage of filmmakers whom he most admires: Rossellini, Bresson, Pasolini.
Dumont reinforces Pharaon's longing for connection by again lingering on shots of the body, but now from Pharaon's subjective point of view: his boss's sweat-soaked neck, his mother's hand as she peels potatoes, Domino's and Joseph's bodies in the throes of sex, his own hand as he pets a nursing sow.
Dumont's attention to landscapes, specifically, and to the natural world, in general, again harkens to Tarkovsky, who saw humanity's increasing alienation from nature as symptomatic of its tragic loss of divine faith.
