Seaside

BORD DE MER

a film by :Julie Lopes Curval

Cayeux, a small seaside town with a huge pebble beach. In winter, it's as deserted as the moon. In summer, however, a crowd of holidaymakers and regulars frequents the beach and its colourful huts, creating a much more festive atmosphere. At one end of the beach, a pebble processing plant where Marie works. She's a pretty young woman. Her boyfriend, Paul, works at the grocery in winter and as a lifeguard in summer. Worried about his mother, Rose, who fritters away her money in slot machines, Paul doesn't understand Marie's dreamy temperament and stifles her with his clumsy love. Marie feels a growing unease. The holidaymakers that she sees over the seasons remind her that her youthful dreams lie elsewhere. She wants to leave. Albert, a young executive at the plant, has just been fired. With his fancy sports car, he seems like a genuine Prince Charming.

French Synopsis :

Cayeux, petite ville de bord de mer longée d'une immense plage de galets. L'hiver, la ville a des aspects lunaires. L'été, une foule de vacanciers et d'habitués se retrouve sur la plage, bordée de petites cabines colorées, qui prend alors des airs de fête. Au bout de la plage, une usine de traitement de galets où travaille Marie. C'est une jolie fille. Son petit ami, Paul, est manutentionnaire l'hiver et maître-nageur l'été. Préoccupé par sa mère, Rose, qui claque sa retraite dans les machines à sous, Paul ne comprend pas le tempérament rêveur de Marie et l'étouffe de son amour maladroit. Alors, un malaise indicible étourdit progressivement Marie. Les vacanciers qu'elle croise au fil des saisons lui rappellent que ses rêves de jeunesse sont ailleurs. Partir. Albert, jeune cadre de l'usine vient d'être renvoyé. Avec sa belle voiture de sport, il a tous les traits du prince charmant.
