La Villa / The House by the Sea (2017, France,
(This film is in French with English Subtitles)
In prolific French auteur Robert Guédiguian’s 19th film, three siblings return to the idyllic seaside home of their dying father and reflect on their personal stories, the collective legacy of the French working class, and the possibility of a hopeful future. As always, Guédiguian’s work achieves a balance between political cinema and insight into human nature, set against the backdrop of France’s Mediterranean coast and the urban color of the director’s native Marseille.
