French filmmaker François Ozon delivers like a pro with his first full length directorial feature, if it could be called that, since the running time is about 50 minutes, but still longer than what would qualify for a short film.
A young mother with a 10 month old baby invites a creepy backpacker woman into her house and a constant tension prevails until the very end 'til which time it is difficult to guess where the film is headed.
"See the Sea" (1997) is a story told in an astonishingly fluid manner, a gripping film that combines Hitchcockian elements of suspense with classic French minimalism, Ozon style.
