(FRANCE)
Subtitled

The latest from controversial French auteur Bruno Dumont, starring Juliette Binoche, is a period slapstick murder mystery set on the northern French coast around 1910.

The basic nuts and bolts of Dumont’s strange tale pertain to a police investigation of the disappearances of several people in a small windswept community on the English Channel.  Dumont immediately makes clear that the local hillbilly-like Brufort clan is responsible – they are, in fact, cannibals.  But the authorities, represented by a laurel and Hardy-like team of police inspectors are clown-like bumblers in black suits and bowler hats without a clue, so the murders continue unabated and unattributed.
