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.

Desperate 20th century Trostsky inspired view of France. Ultimately Boring
SO plain and negative on any aspect. The 'Elite' look and feel stupid while the 'workers class' are depicted as ultimately atrocious and ugly human flesh eaters. It's supposed to be a charge creating laughter.
In the theater where I saw it, in Paris, NOT a single smile except for one in the last minute. its definitively boring and so biased that i am ashamed it was selected for Cannes. And as to aggravate the picture the only likable character of the movie is an ambiguous boy/girl illustrating the 'genre' quarrel France that has been nurturing recently.
