Nominated for a 2016 Palme d’Or and Best Film César, this savage yet oddly charming comedy of manners satirizes France’s class divide, giving Fabrice Luchini and Juliette Binoche a safe space to set new personal bests for O.T.T. zaniness. The scene: tourist season in Northern France’s crystalline Côte d’Opale in 1910, where windswept beaches are transformed into a promenade of petticoats and parasols. The crime: several well-heeled tourists have gone missing, wreaking havoc with social calendars across the bay, not to mention stumping detectives Laurel and Hardy, er, Machin and Malfoy. The brilliant deduction: the culprit has developed a taste for the rich. The suspects: the Bréfort brood, a family of roughneck locals scrounging tidepool mussels for a living. The ridiculous: the Van Peteghem clan, a menagerie of eccentric uppercrusters summering in Typhonium, their tomblike faux-Egyptian manor on the hill. The sublime: young Billie Van Peteghem, whose gender identity ebbs and flows, has taken an ill-advised shine to Bréfort spawn and resident tidewater scum, Ma Loute.
