Slack Bay (15)

France/2016/122m/15. Dir: Bruno Dumont With: Fabrice Luchini, Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

In the summer of 1910 several tourists have gone missing in the northern French coast. At the epicentre of the mystery is the ferrymen of the Brufort clan and the decadent van Peteghems who all live in Slack Bay. It is down to oddball detectives Machin and Malfoy to solve the puzzle. Combining savage archetypes with outrageous performances this is a surreal slapstick comedy. 

"It’s rare for the good to suddenly become great; for that matter, greatness is rare—but one of its marks is precisely such self-testing and self-surpassing audacity, and that’s what Bruno Dumont displays in his gleefully original new film, Slack Bay"
The New Yorker
