Directed by Bruno Dumont

The bourgeois and extremely eccentric Van Peteghem family—among them Juliette Binoche, Fabrice Luchini, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi—have settled in for another summer at their cliff-top villa overlooking the picturesque Slack Bay. Their leisurely rhythm of sunbathing and seaside constitutionals is soon interrupted by the arrival of two bumbling inspectors investigating a string of tourists gone missing (and serving full-on Keystone Kops). As the macabre mysteries mount and love blossoms between the family’s genderqueer teen and the son of a local fisherman, Binoche and company ratchet the slapstick up to eleven. It’s no wonder director Bruno Dumont (Li’l Quinquin, Camille Claudel 1915) cites Peter Sellers, Monty Python, and Laurel and Hardy as cinematic influences for his delightful foray into winking, absurdist farce.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

“Spirited and often gorgeous.”


“Movies like Slack Bay justify the existence of the movies as a medium."

“Binoche’s unbridled turn is tremendous fun to watch.”

"The boldest and freest of recent genre mashups. Raises conflicts of class, character, and gender into off-kilter legend."

"A work of madcap inspiration."

"Completely off the wall."

"Sublimely deranged."

"Suggests Buñuel’s L’Age d’Or by way of Godard’s Weekend... Dumont's most polished work."

"Everyone seems to have drunk their bodyweight in absinthe."

  • Official Selection – Cannes Film Festival 2016

  • Nine Nominations including Best Film, Director, Actor, Supporting Actress – César Awards
