An annual summer escape is interrupted by two bumbling detectives investigating a string of missing tourists in director Bruno Dumont’s comedic film, Ma Loute, starring Juliette Binoche. Dumont’s story is set in 1910, and evokes a past that includes the likes of the Keystone Kops and Laurel and Hardy. Cinema Scope says “with an added emphasis on mischievous wordplay like homonyms and double entendres, the provocative Ma Loute is in parts subversive, perverse, and politically incorrect, while it fashions a bifurcated study of good and evil, love and hate, and, ultimately, social injustice and the sheer vulgarity of vanity itself.” Sounds like quite a night at the movies.
