Book cinema tickets for Slack Bay

Summer 1910. Several tourists have gone missing on the picturesque Channel Coast, just as the eccentric, bourgeois Van Peteghem family (featuring a brilliant Juliette Binoche) arrive to spend the season. A pair of bumbling inspectors chase the lead to a small community of fisherman down at Slack Bay. As the strange mystery unfolds, unlikely love blossoms between young Billie Van Peteghem (Raph) and local boy Ma Loute Bréfort (Brandon Lavieville). Bruno Dumont (Camille Claudel 1915) is now a dab hand at surreal smalltown farces - 2014's similarly macabre P'tit Quinquin proved this and Slack Bay confirms it emphatically.
