Synopsis

Northern France, 1910. The bourgeois Van Peteghem family return to their towering mansion above ‘Slack Bay’ every summer. An unlikely romance blossoms between the mischievous Bille Van Peteghem and local mussel-gatherer, ‘Ma Loute’. Meanwhile, a series of mysterious disappearances are taking place.

Our take

No one’s enjoying Bruno Dumont’s foray into comedy more than us. The former king of the New French Extremity has taken to slapstick like a duck to water in this darkly twisted, hysterically funny whodunnit that also works as a class satire. Plus Juliette Binoche like you’ve never seen her before!
