Opening film of the “Les vacances françaises” festival – 5 July at Summer Pioner in Sokolniki Park. From 7 July at Pioner on Kutuzovsky.

Summer 1910. In the north of France, tourists are disappearing one after another, having ventured into the quiet cove where the Bréforts live – a strange, practically penniless family of oyster farmers who don’t reserve their torture for sea creatures alone. Not far away, the Van Peteghems are spending the summer at their family mansion – a bourgeois family, bordering on decadence, but with clear signs of some psychiatric disorder. These two families are clearly not friends, but their children have some sort of interest in each other… Yet another source of chaos is introduced by the idiotic policemen, Machin and Malfoy, who have arrived on the scene to investigate the mysterious disappearances.
Perennially outré star of European art film Bruno Dumont (“Humanity,” “Twentynine Palms,” “Camille Claudel 1915”) had already drastically shifted tone in his previous comic mini-series “P’tit Quinquin” (2014). In “Ma loute,” the director’s brilliant new comic talent continues to develop, mixed with the grotesque, the absurd, and the surreal. Juliette Binoches plays one of the main roles. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival
