By a little bay near Marseilles lies a picturesque villa owned by an old man. His three children have gathered by his side for his last days: Angela (Ariane Ascaride), an actress living in Paris, Joseph (Jean-Pierre Darroussin), who has just fallen in love with a girl half his age and Armand (Gérard Meylan), the only one who stayed behind in the bay to run the family's small restaurant. It's time for them to weigh up what they have inherited of their father's ideals and the community spirit he created in this magical place. The arrival, at a nearby cove, of a group of boat people will throw these moments of reflection into turmoil.

Family Refocusing What is Important - The House by the Sea review by KW

Spoiler Alert

Interesting film about three siblings gathering at the family home to visit their father who is slowly passing away.  Various events happen during the course of the film that faces them to focus on what is really important, and brought into sharp focus by the finding of three young children separated from the parents whilst illegally entering France.  Kept one engrossed in the film but fear that it will only cater for a limited section of the members.

No.... - The House by the Sea review by LA

Spoiler Alert

"By a little bay near Marseilles lies a picturesque villa" - so they say...stop right there. If you thought this would be an idyllic Mediterranean pastoral forget it. It's a bleak rocky port full of anti immigrant army vehicles, with a noisy railway viaduct right overhead and death or creepy octopi in the waters... plus one of the worst scripts ever encountered, and dreary unloving characters who literally poison themselves to escape from the story. No.

Brilliant , moving & thoughtful drama - The House by the Sea review by PK

Spoiler Alert

I loved this film it had so much depth & layers.

There was the family story & history & the community changes.

Also the immigration issue was beautifully portrayed.

I was mesmerised by the storytelling & would strongly recommend this film
