Alain Delon, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Juliette Gréco and Jean-Claude Brialy make short appearances in this first feature film by a director with an original career path that has remained unfairly marginal. Under the guise of an ordinary love story, L’amour à la mer finds a way to evoke so many facets of life—including war. With jubilant freedom and playfulness, Guy Gilles uses popular songs, voiceovers, photos, flashbacks and musical editing with an inventiveness that seems to have barely aged.
