Slack Bay

Ma Loute

A film by Bruno Dumont

HOME

ON SCREEN

Summer 1910. Several tourists have vanished while relaxing on the beautiful beaches of the Channel Coast. Infamous inspectors Machin and Malfoy soon gather that the epicentre of these mysterious disappearances must be Slack Bay, a unique site where the Slack river and the sea join only at high tide.

 

There lives a small community of fishermen and other oyster farmers. Among them evolves a curious family, the Bréforts, renowned ferrymen of the Slack Bay, lead by the father nick-named “The Eternal”, who rules as best as he can on his prankster bunch of sons, especially the impetuous Ma Loute.

 

Towering high above the bay stands the Van Peteghems’ mansion. Every summer, this bourgeois family – all degenerate and decadent from inbreeding – stagnates in the villa, not without mingling during their leisure hours of walking, sailing or bathing, with the ordinary local people, Ma Loute and the other Bréforts.

 

Over the course of  five days, as starts a peculiar love story between Ma Loute and the young and mischievous Billie van Peteghem, confusion and mysti cation will descend on both families, shaking their convictions, foundations and way of life.

 

Ma Loute, a burlesque, slapstick black comedy, marks Juliette Binoche's second turn with Bruno Dumont in the director's chair after the critically acclaimed Camille Claudel 1915 (2013).
