Marie Baie des Anges

A Feature film by Manuel Pradal

Produced by Les Films de la Suane

Release in France : 04/03/1998


    When the film begins, Orso has barely turned 15. With his jutting cheekbones and merman's muscles, there is something compelling tinged with violence about him, that look of darkness or pride in his face. A pickpocket on the night train that continues on to Italy, he dreams of getting a gun so that he can grow up like an outlaw. Marie is 14. She's the little queen of the Bay, skipping back and forth between the teenage riffraff and the young US Navy boys on shore leave. With her little birdlike body reaching toward the promise of a beautiful summer, Marie feels the strength of love inside her. Orso and Marie are loners, wild and proud, both dreaming of a world that is bigger than them. They pass by, ignore, defy, and finally love each other in the dizziness of Angels Bay.

    I wanted to show a free, wild, animal adolescence, where people meet and part in the heat of the moment, without words or psychology – a sort of natural cruelty, the insolent casualness of those who are untrammelled by love and yet keep coming back to knock at its door. I always find very young couples moving. I wanted to show some of that in the scenes between Orso and Marie on the island, the semblance of life as a couple and the clumsiness of situations like the picnic, in which childhood always rears its head and disrupts the grownup game. (Manuel Pradal - excerpt from press kit)
