In a village on the French Opal Coast, a drifter engages in a perplexing relationship with a young woman who has suffered abuse.
At the edge of the English Channel, on the Côte d’Opale, near a hamlet, its dunes and marshes, there lives a strange fellow who gets by somehow, poaches, prays and builds fires. A vagrant who appears from nowhere and who, in a single breath, hounds out the evil from a village haunted by the devil and places the world outside of Satan. Outside Satan is the sixth feature film by Bruno Dumont. This film is a cinematographic experience, appealing to the audience’s feelings and emotions. Deeply inspired by the landscapes of the côte d’Opale in the north of France, a world of sand dunes, woods and marshes, where Bruno Dumont has been living for some of the year since he was a child.
