ABOUT

The love that Gaud has for Yann remains unanswered. Although Yann actually does love Gaud, his heart beats for the sea and he has even vowed to marry it some day. When Gaud's nephew and Yann's best friend Sylvestre dies, Yann marries Gaud as he promised him. But the sea does not agree with this decision.

This love story, filmed against the background of a small fisher's island, is not only very moving, but also visually beautiful. Based on a novel by Pierre Loti.
