Dir. Bruno Dumont, France, Germany, Belgium, 122 mins, 2016.
It’s summer 1910 on a lovely stretch of France’s northern coastline, home to . Several tourists have vanished while relaxing on its beautiful beaches, leading to an investigation which soon discovers the epicentre of these mysterious disappearances must be Slack Bay, a small seaside community home to two rather different families: the ferrymen of the Brufort clan and the degenerate and decadent bourgeois van Peteghems…
Combining savage archetypes with spot-on wit, Slack Bay is a fun, peculiar romp with deeper conceits lurking beneath the surface. It marks a radical tonal shift from the directors usual patient and beautifully shot with a high contrast palette, the movie has a hyperreal quality that makes it Dumonts most polished work.
‘Bruno Dumonts wacky, macabre crime comedy, starring Juliette Binoche and Fabrice Luchini, is very strange and very funny’ ????
