I've seen one of these so far: Flandres, which I caught at last year's London Film fesvatil. It's excellent - the latest film from Bruno Dumont, writer-director of the highly divisive La Vie de Jesus, L'Humanite and Twentynine Palms. Perhaps Flandres improves the Dumont 'thang' in that it's only an hour and a half, the story is clipped and straight to the point, and Dumont uses his characteristic longueurs to create amazing tension.It's a story of a farm labourer in northern France who's drafted to fight in an unnamed war in a far-away land (which looks like it could be taken to be Iraq or Afghanistan). Meanwhile his girlfriend back home waits things out. This very hackneyed story is given a new power by Dumont's unblinking approach. Emotional, stomach-knotting stuff - terrific.
