Summer 1910, North of France. Some mysterious disappearances have thrown the Slack Bay area into turmoil and the infamous Inspector Machin and his shrewd assistant carry out an investigation. They find themselves at the heart of a peculiar love story between Ma Loute, the elder son of the Brufort, a curious family of fishermen, and Billie, the offspring of the degenerate Van Peteghems bourgeois. Bruno Dumont’s exhilarating, absurdist and dark comedy features a first class French cast.
