Slack Bay (Ma Loute) [Sub: Eng]

Description
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.

... the provocative Ma Loute is in parts subversive, perverse, and politically incorrect, while it fashions a bifurcated study of good and evil, love and hate, and, ultimately, social injustice and the sheer vulgarity of vanity itself.

This is a spirited and often gorgeous film (Guillaume Deffontaines, the cinematographer, makes the eyes of even the most ostensibly unattractive characters supernaturally beautiful), but it's not an easy one.

Though the combination of social critique and unhinged laughs doesn't always jell, the movie is quite gloriously a thing unto itself, even as it draws upon obvious inspirations.

Bruno Dumont pushed himself as a filmmaker with his comic detective miniseries "P'tit Quinquin", and now he seems to have confirmed this new direction for the cinema with "Slack Bay", a pratfall-filled coastal tale of crime and love set in the 1910s.

With a touch of Tintin and a pinch of Pynchon, it winds back and forth across the Channel coast so that the beautifully crisp natural tones and light bathe the degradation and deformity that perpetually lurks in this raspberry to French history.

Dumont directs with a sense of whimsy, only becoming serious as it explores the relationship between the teenage characters.

Slack Bay is a very weird concoction that won't be to everyone's taste. Yet this superbly photographed fabrication is, ultimately, strangely compelling.

One of those rare movies that looks like it was fun to make, and is even more fun to watch.

The film's charms are substantial, but what makes Slack Bay so original and enticing is also what makes it fairly alienating.

"Slack Bay" is devoid of any emotional satisfaction, and laughs come few and far between, perhaps because the humor is so French-centric.

Slack Bay is not always funny, but it's truly unique and in the long run, more emotionally powerful than might be expected.
