Hard Shell, Soft Shell

The stunning Mediterranean scenery of the French town of Sète is the backdrop for the struggles of the young characters in Emma Benestan's feature debut. Az, who works on an oyster farm, wants to start adult life with a bang. His bold plan falls through when his beloved Jess, who's about to start an acting career, rejects his spontaneous marriage proposal. Az is heartbroken but he doesn't give up, still hoping to win her over somehow. To that end, he starts taking dance lessons from his charming friend Lili. Az can count on family and friends like few others but he has to find the true definition of happiness for himself. Hard Shell, Soft Shell is a coming of age romantic comedy that feels like a breath of fresh air. It takes an affectionate look at characters trying to navigate a maelstrom of emotions, using a healthy dose of humor and a pinch of irony. With its catchy soundtrack, Benestan's film adds up to a real shot of positive energy.
