Slack Bay / Ma Loute (15)

lalouteImagine a Buñuelesque black comedy set against the stunning background of the north coast of France (close to Calais and director Bruno Dumont’s home patch). Then mix in topics such as cannibalism and class divisions, spice liberally with knockabout comedy, a flying inflatable policeman and other such delights and you have an approximation of this Pythonesque extravaganza. Dumont, who made the TV mini-series L’il Quinquin in 2014 in the same neck of the woods (it also had a cinema outing), seems, after years of austere dramas, to have acquired a taste for comedy and here he allows his stellar cast to let rip.
