Storyline

August in Brittany at a seaside hotel. Some guests are new, some come every year and are friends. The men nearing middle age fish and plan infidelities; their wives have surprises of their own in store. Teens fall in and out of love. Kids not yet teens have their own parties and friendships. Lucien's friends set him up with Aline, the wife of a jealous husband. Euloge wants an assignation with the waitress, Yveline. While a husband philanders, his wife goes to Morlaix to see antiques, giving one youth a lift. Their daughter Estelle dumps two boyfriends. There's a talent contest. The hôtelière has an unexpected suitor. The month ends; in 11 months, most but not all will be back. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fantastic French Farce.
30 June 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw this film years ago on the BBC late on a Saturday night. I at school and learning French and though the content was something a little risqué for a 13 year old I was allowed to stay up and watch it. I loved it though not quite sure if I fully understood it then. It really is a wonderful seaside romp with the main pastime being everyone trying to get off with everyone else. It may sound a bit sordid, but it is anything but. It is funny, tasteful and a great way of spending 90 minutes or so. The character interactions and story line just flow in a seamless way, taking the viewer along on the ride. The BBC seemed to repeat it every summer during their 'Foreign film season for a good few years: for me and my school friends it became a summer favourite. Recommended for students of French and The French.
