It’s 1910, and an oddball bourgeois clan (including Juliette Binoche, Fabrice Luchini, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) retire to their seaside villa for the summer. But when a series of tourists begin disappearing, things really start to get strange… A box-office smash in France that was nominated for nine César Awards, including Best Film and Best Director, the latest from Gallic maverick Dumont pushes the wild comedic experiments of his previous Li’l Quinquin to delirious new heights. Official selection: Cannes Film Festival. A Kino Lorber release.

In English and French with English subtitles.

A film by Bruno Dumont

One-of-a-kind… beautifully made, bracingly eccentric… like an unholy alliance between Jacques Tati and Euro-period Joseph Losey.”
