  • Julie Lopes-Curval's debut film is a lushly photographed and mature work. Set over the course of a year in Cayeux, a once-luxurious coastal town in Northern France, SEASIDE follows the lives of a group of residents who are struggling to find happiness. Rose (Bulle Ogier) is a compulsive gambler and mother of Paul (Jonathan Zaccai), who lives with the beautiful, but unhappy, Marie (Helene Fillieres). Across town, Albert (Patrick Lizana), finds himself becoming disillusioned with his marriage. As the seasons change, time continues to stand still for these individuals, who can't seem to escape the confines of their town's haunted past.

    Co-written with Francois Favrat, Lopes-Curval's deeply poignant drama captures life in a small seaside town with unflinching honesty. Almost painterly in its composition (compliments of director of photography Stephan Massis), the film pulls the viewer into the characters' world, and keeps them there for the entire year. Winner of the Camera d'Or at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival for best first feature, SEASIDE marks the arrival of yet another important French director.
