I have seen this movie on the German TV yesterday with the title: "A summer at the sea" and I was deeply impressed.
Despite that it was produced in 1990, the theme is more up-to-date than ever. Excellent actors of all ages performed very well indeed, a great story, some romantic spots and lovely music will make you thinking about the relationship of children to their parents, their pain and childish emotions which often get hurt.
This story could happen today, next month or the following year, next door of you or at any other location or country. So you will get nothing NEW out of that movie but the sad reality of daily life in the eyes of children whose parents can't behave.
I only can highly recommend this movie - buy the DVD and you will enjoy it definitively more than just one time.
