Movie Info

Rose (Bulle Ogier) is a retired factory worker who spends much of her time at the nearby casino, and her son, Paul (Jonathan Zaccaï), is a lifeguard on the beach.

As the seasons pass, Rosie, Paul, Marie and other locals go through various changes.

  • The film's simple beauty lies in the way that Lopes-Curval effortlessly equates life to a passing season.

  • Along with Ms. Ogier, these four actresses [Fillires, Lizana, Mkal, Rovre] are the best reasons to see Seaside.

  • Effective, if less than urgent.

    August 6, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Touching, amusing, sometimes compelling, Seaside is ultimately little more revealing than a weekend visit. It's a sheaf of captivating postcards.

    August 6, 2003
  • [Lopes-Curval's] achievement is so particularly -- and peculiarly -- realized, evoking the enforced parameters and rhythms of small-town life, that the movie itself begins to feels restrictive.

    August 6, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
  • The story is familiar and the direction doesn't break any new ground. Still, Lopes-Curval's excellent ensemble cast makes Seaside pleasurable viewing.

Audience Reviews for Seaside

  • Jun 17, 2015
    "Seaside" gets one thing perfectly right. Namely, what it is like to live in a small, provincial resort village all year round, as it follows a group of characters trapped by one circumstance or another. The bad news is none of the characters are well-defined enough to care about or to even be of much interest.(One of them might have a gambling problem. I think.) All of which significantly lessens any impact this movie might otherwise have had.
