See this film: Outside Satan @ the MFA

The MFA continues its outstanding Boston French Film Festival with Outside Satan (2011), in which Bruno Dumont brings his bleak eye for landscape and his even bleaker insight into human nature to a tale about a charismatic stranger passing through a desolate seacoast village. The visitor has strange powers and performs apparent miracles. When he helps an abused local woman, however, it seems that he might be too good to be true. As in previous films like Hadewijch and Humanité, Dumont himself remains neutral, evoking transcendence without judgment. It screens Saturday, July 21 at 8 pm and Sunday, July 22 at 1 pm at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave, Boston | $11; $9 students, seniors | 617.267.9300 or
