Slack Bay

Critics Consensus

Slack Bay won't resonate with all viewers, but for filmgoers attuned to absurd French farce, its slapstick chaos should deliver just enough belly laughs.

Audience Reviews for Slack Bay (Ma loute)

    The physical humor and the way the characters are presented as bizarre caricatures is initially amusing, but that gets tired really fast and the film becomes only silly, unfunny and repetitious - and I was rolling my eyes after the umpteenth time that someone fell down on the ground.

    I don't know what my expectations for this film could've been, I would hoped for something humorous as well as authentic given the production scale and period setting. Although, as much as given this film could've gone either route, it eventually descends into obscurity and sophistication distorting the main focus of the narrative, either within the plotting of the film that takes an almost sparse turn for the Horror comedy or an over melodramatic murder mystery thrown in with a comedic blood feud sub plot. As much as I wanted to like this film, as well as I wanted to be invested in the plot and characters, it's the derailing of the film's tone and focus that eventually I really began to question after the very end of the film, 'What the F*ck did I just watch?'. In a way the film is "weird" in the most sophisticated manner, I couldn't tell if it was intentionally made this way or not, I don't recommend it for casual viewers nor for those looking for a new potential cult favourite. I don't see myself re-watching this anytime soon, probably within a few years before I might... give it a second chance.
