Mariscos Beach

Critics Consensus

This listless, albeit sexually charged, French farce is too lightweight to make any impact despite its whimsical qualities.

    One of the 3 worst films i've seen so far in my entire existence. Gay love and sexy time on the beach while spewing horrible dialogues and disastrous scenes. The french should stick to their Taxi and Banlieue 13, cuz they suck at this romance drama misguided sexuality crap. One star for Valeria Bruni the only thing worth watching...more or less. Don't waste you're time. Peace! P.S. "Horea: Blanka, Chewbaca, wookie...RRRRrrrrrr!"

    This is the forth movie Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau did together... and they made a real summer movie about husband and wife - Marc (Melki) and Béatrix (Tedeschi)- who take their two kids to the seaside house of Marc's youth. Not much of the family atmosphere though: their daughter takes up with a biker and their son roams the beach with his best friend, who is in love with him. Things get steamier when Béatrix's lover Mathieu shows up, and Marc's old flame appears... The best part of this movie is Valeria Bruni Tedeschi! WOW!

    [font=Century Gothic]"Cote d'Azur" takes place while a family is on vacation in the south of France. Beatrix and Marc are parents of two teenaged children. The daughter, Laura, is off to Portugal with a biker.(Every parent's worse nightmare - the biker part not Portugal.) Beatrix is okay with this because of her Dutch parentage. The son, Charly, sticks around for his friend Martin to arrive who he has not seen in a year. After some quick observations, Beatrix declares them to be gay lovers.(She's half right.) Again she is perfectly fine with this, even if her husband is a little perturbed. The next person to make an appearance is Beatrix's lover. Complications ensue.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Cote d'Azur" is a mildly amusing French sex farce that preaches tolerance. It does have a rather old-fashioned feel to it with an occasional dash of irreverence thrown in. The performances are good and the situations are believable with one major contrivance.[/font]
