Synopsis

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.

Bruno Dumont---France/Germany---2016---122 mins.

If you're into incest, androgyny, inept cops, levitation, cannibalism, inbreeding, cretinous peasants, upper class nincompoops and ninnies and overwrought acting this is the film for you. I gave it one star for the performance of Fabrice Luchini. Just two days before I'd seen him as the clueless aristocrat Jourain in Moliere, and I couldn't believe that I was watching the same actor. The guy's amazing, a chameleon.
