See the Sea / Regarde la mer (1997)
Genre: Drama / Thriller
Director: François Ozon
Starring: Sasha Hails, Marina de Van
Sasha is a young British woman vacationing with her baby daughter at Ile d'Yeu, a peaceful beach community. She takes in Tatiana, a mysterious backpacker passing through, while her husband is away on business.
François Ozon's first film, See the Sea, is a poetic, suspenseful, and subtly menacing tale of two very different women. A short precursor to what would be the coming wave of shocking cinema from France.
