Having made a name for himself with stark, unflinching dramas like HUMANITY, TWENTYNINE PALMS and FLANDERS, few would have imagined Bruno Dumont would ever wind up making a comedy. Yet, his new film SLACK BAY, centered around a family of cannibals in a small French coastal town in 1910, is a broad continuation of the absurdist humour of his critically acclaimed TV-series L’IL QUINQUIN. Combining a satirical depiction of class structures with his own take on slapstick, Dumont serves up a film quite unlike anything else you’re likely to see this year.
