Directed by Bruno Dumont (France, 2018, 208 min.). Digital. French with English subtitles.

In Bruno Dumont’s follow-up to his absurdist caper Li’l Quinquin, a pugnacious farm boy (the titular Coincoin, played by Alane Delhaye) discovers a gelatinous blue puddle in a field. Two eccentric police officers, Captain Van der Weyden (Bernard Pruvost) and Officer Carpentier (Philippe Jore), are assigned to the case. As they dig deeper into the origin of the puddle, they begin to notice that the residents of their seaside town are acting strangely. Soon the officers are joined by hazmat-suited government officials, who theorize that the puddle is from outer space–and aliens have invaded the idyllic seaside town.
