Regarde la mer
Intriguing mid-length drama was originally considered for the Cruel Machine because of its oppressive character.
Sous le sable
Deeply compassionate, subtle and most mature film so far by Ozon about the pain of losing a loved one. Marie has been happily married for years and is on holiday with her husband, who disappears without trace after a dive.
