Movie Watch! - Crustacés et coquillages

Crustacés et coquillages (2005) - Titled simply Côte d'Azur for its American release, this movie centers around a family staying at a gorgeous seaside villa in Southern France. It was an extremely French affair, to say the least. I thought it'd be a nice little foreign drama set in a beautiful locale, but instead I got a slightly comedic, slightly dramatic, slightly bizarre set of scenes that came together in a very dysfunction fashion. But I didn't mind too much. The whole thing spiraled into campy oblivion, but while its mental integrity was still intact, it was pleasant enough to sit through. Just be prepared. 5/10.
