Synopsis A man lives completely alone in a desolate place in rural France. A retreat that is only broken by a young woman from a neighbouring farm, a quiet visitor who every day delivers food to the hermit. It however soon becomes clear that this tranquil and magnetic man harbours something unusual, superhuman. In his own way, it is him who has kept the devil at bay far from the region, and especially far from his pallid and fragile protector and protected, with whom he shares a profound and quiet love. With his rough appearance and impassive air, he prevents evil in all its forms: be it with avenging deaths, exorcisms or keeping natural disasters in check. Even in the most adverse circumstances, miracles shall take place in the green steppes.
Director bio Bruno Dumont (Bailleul, France1958) directed his first feature film at the age of 38: The Life of Jesus (1996), shot in his hometown. This film granted him instant recognition, as it was selected for Directors' Fortnight at Cannes and won a Special Mention Caméra d'Or. He set on a demanding, harsh and raw filmic path, and returned to Cannes in 1999 with L'humanité competing in the Official Selection. The film won the Grand Prix and the amateur actors also received awards. For his next film, Dumont leaves Northern France for the california desert, where he shot Twentynine Palms, a road movie selected at Venice in 2003. His next film, Flandres (2006), a tough war film, received the Grand Prix at Cannes. That same year, the Gijón Film Festival did the first retrospective of his work in Spain, and an essay about his cinema was published. Hors Satan was presented at Cannes 2011 in the section Un certain regard.
