Slack Bay

– Žmonės įlankoje dingsta?

– Andre, juk tai siaubinga!

It’s the summer of 1910, a community of fishermen live in a lonely village in the Northern French coast. Every summer a bourgeois family comes to their villa uphill. Several tourists mysteriously disappear from the beaches. Characters that are one weirder than the other soon involve themselves in this theatrical detective, full of fainting and forbidden feelings.

Won Cannes Soundtrack Award for Best Synchronised Music.

Bruno Dumont

Bruno Dumont is a French screenwriter and filmmaker. To date, his films have won several awards at the Cannes Film Festival. His works often show the ugliness of extreme violence and provocative sexual behaviour, though in Slack Bay he gives us a viable macabre entertainment in the spirit of the Belle Époque, history of cinema and live jokes.
