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.

@max

No, it's not a scary film. There's a suspenseful tension that builds gradually from the opening and then explodes at the end.
