Une si jolie petite plage

February 17, 2014

A mysterious young man (Gerard Philipe) visits a desolate coastal town during a bleak winter, soon followed by another watchful, curious stranger.

Gradually, the boy's connection to the town and his dark secret is revealed. A quintessentially French approach to Noir.
