Crustacés et Coquillages

This movie is also called Côte d'Azur, and its English title is a very appropriate Cockles and Mussels. It's very French and very breezy. A lot of sex, and talk about sex, in many different combinations. Unfortunately, we missed the end, as the recording stopped at the set time, but the movie had started late. So, I'll never know if it becomes more serious, or if everybody continues their extra-marital affairs with impunity. The last bit we saw was when Marc, the husband, is meeting his old flame, and Béatrix's lover has called to the house in the middle of the night. If you know the end, let me know!

The one thing I loved about the movie was the gorgeous Mediterranean light - stunningly bright in the middle of the day, subdued at dusk, always glowing.
