All Hands on Deck

All Hands on Deck ★★★★

Very low on conflict and high on possibility as fits a vacation film. Wonderful acted by the young cast and handled by Brac in such effortless manner it is easy to underrated it as it pretty much about creating a comfortable world and let the cast loose. It isn't that far off 80s Rohmer, without the grand auteur design, as Rohmer's characters are ultimately moved by god and Brac's by their own urges. The best praise I can give it is that it really made me want to get wasted by the beach. In an ideal world, the Guillaume Brac summer hangout movie would become as big a cinephile tradition than Hong Sang-soo's yearly movie.
