A zany police investigation in a small village in Normandy. Twin Peaks à la Dumont: ironic and unclassifiable!

P'tit Quinquin is a mini series from Bruno Dumont who is usually busy making arthouse movies. Can't say I've seen any of his films but I certainly thought about giving one a go in the past. Having been a bit reluctant to watching all four episodes in one sitting I found myself surprised of how fun this thing actually is.
There is plenty of dark humor and the vibe is almost goofy at times. The characters are also everything but standard with (?)most of the cast actually being non actors and also involving people with physical or mental disabilities (which makes it sometimes hard to guess if some scenes are played for the laughs). The look of the show is also quite nice and the rural village makes for a good setting.
Be warned that not every mystery is resolved so if you need that closure you might not want to watch this. For everyone else I can only recommend to check it out once it airs on ARTE.
