Slack Bay

Dir. Bruno Dumont. France, 2016. 2h 2m. French/subs. Starring Fabrice Luchini, Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Jean-Luc Vincent, Brandon Lavieville.

A family on their annual seaside holiday come across two bumbling detectives investigating the recent disappearance of tourists in the area. An extravagant and eccentric comedy that is full of quirky characters, farcical slapstick, and cannibalism.

'It’s slapstick cannibal class war on the seaside from one of Europe’s most unique and consistently surprising directors.’ ★★★★ Phil Colcannon, Little White Lies

'Dumont is still in a mordantly merry mood, as this alternately buoyant, bleak and thoroughly bananas seaside ramble makes delightfully clear.’ ★★★★ Guy Lodge, Time Out
