The house by the sea in the cinema : Bay of melancholy

the evening sun. Terrace. Sea. Peace. Chamber game for an old Hand, and the balcony table, as the Finger suddenly Stop at him, unmistakably last Stop, it is not clear that this night is peace, says the man who looks to the sea. What a log of a stroke! And then the children of the old Maurice in the small coastal town of Marseille, Angèle, the successful theatre actress, who wanted to see this place never more, and Joseph, of the trade unionists. Joseph looks as if he has invented happiness. The Slogan was "the Greatest possible happiness for all!" is the guiding principle of his life. Now, his young friend is the Only thing that works in the future.

What will become of father? Family from involuntary occasion of a meeting is always a grateful Subject of the cinema. How casually, almost at Random-Private, whole of society portraits design. Robert Guédiguian is the Marseille-filmmakers among the French Directors. "Marius and Jeanette – love in Marseille" (1997) is his most famous work, followed by "Café Olympique – a birthday in Marseille" (2014). Again and again, the urban Chaos, great disorder on the sea. Guédiguian (65) could not Dodge his Year in accordance with the social commitment, that's why he never came to the idea of Urfehler could have been that the life has left the water at all.

"the house by The sea" is not in Marseille, but in a small Bay next door. What was this small fishing village, the siblings are in agreement: the Paradise. About what it is today: a Paradise lost, most of the houses are empty. Their better-off owners to come again in the summer, the place is dying like the old Maurice. That is the framework. Guédiguian fills him with dialogues, in the Form: Like so much of the end is possible, where so much the beginning was? Would have what we call the social development, this Bay is not easily overlooked? The vague micro-hope behind it: Is in the end not sometimes a new beginning decided?

Guédiguian has re-engaged his old film family, consistently, finally, you play a family here, too, and it is quite beautiful, careful to watch again approach the siblings, silent Rejection is included. Jean-Pierre Darroussin is the disheveled unionists, Gérard Meylan, the oldest, always dagebliebene brother who runs the Restaurant of his father: cheap and still good. It is a question of world order. The siblings find to notice such values, insights into the contemporary human Condition, such as: "In the head right and the heart on the left".

Guédiguians wife Ariane Ascaride is Angèle, the theatre actress, become legendary in the "Good person of Szechwan", which break the world coordinates of a local Fisher boy revolutionized: fish and Brecht's theatre, no,'cal Theater and close to fish! The young man loved veteran of the stage, before he saw you, and now much more. The sounds of the world in a vivid and erotic, some violent, and that's the way it is. As the aged brothers and sisters will eventually find three parentless refugee children in the coastal forest and hide from the police, you are out of tune, seriously. So there they are, the Left. Ruin easily the most beautiful, smartest melancholy and the movie in the service of humanity.
