Cote d’Azur

Cote D' Azur A French family with enough carnal secrets to keep an army of therapists busy goes on a summer vacation on the Mediterranean beach where their hidden passions emerge for all to see. Adultery and latent homosexuality are bandied about like so much seaweed along with a couple of vapid song and dance numbers by the writing and directing team of Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau in this offbeat familial sex farce. “Cote d’Azur” ("Crustaces et Coquillages") is an act of cinematic masturbation against pastel colors. The story is incapable of translating outside of its cloistered realm.
Not Rated, 90 mins. (D+) (One Star)
