Directed by Bruno Dumont
Summer 1910. Several tourists have vanished while relaxing on the beautiful beaches of the Channel Coast. Infamous inspectors Machin and Malfoy soon gather that the epicenter of these mysterious disappearances must be Slack Bay, a unique site where the Slack river and the sea join only at high tide.

Never seen so many tumbles taken in a single film. Juliette Binoche does hysterical better than anyone.

Completely over the top and bizarre. I LOVED this movie!
Not sure to whom I could recommend it tho... I'm sure a lot of people will find the acting atrocious and will probably get tired of the slapstick humor after 5 min.
Personnally, I thought it was hilarious, uncompromising and so unique.
Lovely cinematography and production, wonderful cast (Raph is a revelation) and a delightful script.
Both Fabrice Luchini and Juliette Binoche are national treasures.
Worth checking for fans of weird comedies like Jeunet's Delicatessen or Kusturica's Black Cat White Cat.

🎈 My favorite cannibalistic class-war slapstick romantic farce.🎈
Delivers a pretty damning social statement between eating the rich and gender identity.

Full review out on Audiences Everywhere!
Lots of snickering to be had but not much outright laughter.
Plays just like a Tati with its aural slapstick. I love the aesthetic so much, gah. Every frame is just so pretty.
Very repetitive though, feels much longer than it actually is, even if every frame is enchanting.
