Enjoyable comedy
2 February 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a family's summer holiday in the south of France turning into a series of shocks, when their secrets of their love lives are revealed.

"Mariscos Beach", as this film is called in Hong Kong, is a lighthearted and funny film. The plot needs no crude or gross jokes, it just makes people laugh by surprises. I find it funny when the parents behave more rebelliously than their teenage son! The drama side of the plot, which involves the family tension and the relationship between husband and wife is also engaging. "Mariscos Beach" is a film about acceptance, finding one's true self and loving each other despite differences. It made me smile from my heart.
