Storyline

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 epicenter 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 Bréfort, 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, aged 18. 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... Written by Memento Films

So so bad words are missing
5 July 2016 | by (Paris France) – See all my reviews

This movie is so bad that it motivated me to create an account on IMDb and tell other people not to go seeing it. I don't know what happened in the mind of the guy who put this through, but it's an awful result: a particularly boring movie, nothing interesting happens, famous actors just saying their words (how did they accept to do it?!), painful and absolutely not funny scenes, in two words: a cinema disaster! I am so deceived for the French cinema after seeing this, don't know when I'll have the courage to go see another one...not so soon I suppose. If going into details, there is an absence of action in the movie that makes it painful to watch, especially in a cinema: I wanted to get out from there and run after 30 minutes! Then, the very special humor the author wants to share is simply not funny: showing us the specific accent of people in the North of France (presented as something indistinguishable), is supposed to be funny, but it is not, especially when is repeated several times over the movie. Eventually, what is somehow funny is people falling down from a chair or having a car accident, oh my god this is so funny, this gives you an idea about the degree of fun of the movie. Then, the story in itself has too many elements that go right and left and at the center and then again at the center right and left: please understand here that there is no such a story in this movie and more importantly, no interesting story. The general theme of mocking the French bourgeoisie of the beginning of the XXth century could have been a good start for an interesting crazy story if the script and the making of the movie were achieved. Instead, despite some brilliant actor play (Luchini) the result is bullshit.
