Mysteries of Love

Humanité mounts a complicated investigation of a simple man

For all its accomplishments, Humanité is occasionally absurd, especially during the scene in which Winter suddenly levitates in his garden. The finale, as ambiguous as it is moving, seems likely to provoke as many arguments as the "redemptions" that ended Breaking the Waves and Bad Lieutenant. But who needs instant certainty about every element of a film in order to value it? Perfection can be suffocating, and Humanité--imperfections included--is among the most vital films to turn up this year.
