Humanity

A Feature film by Bruno Dumont

Produced by 3B Productions

Release in France : 27/10/1999

    Synopsis

    This is the story of a simple young man with modest knowledge but great faith in everyone. Although Pharaon Dewynter is a police inspector, this is the story of an unsophisticated life. He is a strict, humble man who feels the pain of others and constantly suffers from his own compassion. His job, a nasty investigation, slowly reveals his despair and bewilderment at his own guilt, a universal guilt over the monstrous nature of humanity. This is the story of Dewynter's sacrifice.

    War was at hand, and we were trying to depict lives solely through cinematic means. In order to avoid being soldiers.
