Great shootings. Very nice for the age, a silent short.

I absolutely love it! It's a really nice short documentary, snapshots of the certain time and place really.
There's a really nice BBC documentary with Richard E Grant from 2013 about Cote d'Azur and this little movie is mentioned in it. It explains better what was going on - for those who complain this movie is pointless.

The score was pretty bad, so I played some of my own music over it but nevertheless a nice interesting silent short.

Loved this, hated the included soundtrack. Try syncing it up with "Red" by Boris. An experience.

A very bizarre, experimental, short. Showing everyday lie in Nice, France the film is a series of images of both the frivolities of the wealthy and the despair of the poor. There was an overuse of stylized camerawork that added nothing to the film. However, there were also some innovative progression shots, with the scene changing but the camera not moving. It was somewhat interesting to just see the shots of average people going about their lives in the early 30's. Unfortunately the complete lack of narrative and meandering shot sequence did not hold my interest and I was just waiting for it to end.

The first of only four films by Jean Vigo. A silent b&w avant-garde short snapshot of the French seaside city. 6/10.
