Since Hector encountered Truquette at the Louvre on July 14th, he’s only had one thing in mind: to seduce this girl who he’s mad about. The best way to do so is to take her to the seaside. His pal Pator agrees wholeheartedly, particularly if she comes along with her friend Charlotte.
This irreverent, absurdist comedy overtly steals the spirit and style of a sacred tradition of French New Wave cinema, romanticizing its ethos while charmingly parodying the stereotypes that populate Gallic movies. From the Quinzaine, a summery dose of pure Frenchness.
