French Twist

Desperate village youths delivera grim Life of Jesus

The film is a bit portentous, and some passages about the boys' boredom translate into boredom for the viewer as well. For that matter, the story line is awfully familiar. Kader's death feels more predictable than tragically inevitable. But Dumont has a way of getting inside his inarticulate characters and lighting them from within. He finds their humanity even as they're throwing it away.

The Life of Jesus.
Directed by Bruno Dumont. With David Douche, Marjorie Cottreel, Kader Chaatouf and Genevieve Cottreel. Unrated. Playing January 30 and 31 at the Museum of Fine Arts, 1001 Bissonnet, (713)639-7515.
