The House by the Sea

Dir.  Robert Guédiguian | France 2018| 107 min | 12A | Subtitled

"The House by the Sea feels like the work of a filmmaker gazing back over his own filmography as one might across a sparkling blue sea, and observing its tides."Variety

In this tragic tale of family discord, his three adult siblings, Angèle (Ariane Ascaride), Joseph (Jean-Pierre Darroussin), and Armand (Gérard Meylan), gather at their childhood home to attend to their father (Fred Ulysse) who has suffered a debilitating stroke. After years apart, the siblings reflect on who they’ve become and what they’ve inherited.

A rich tapestry of culture, the film examines how the local relates to the global and what it means to live life based on values. One of the peaks in Guédiguian’s illustrious career, the House by the Sea is a mournful tribute to a fading lifestyle.

Tickets: £7.75 / £6.00 (inc. Poly Fund)
