Marylou (Jeanne Lambert) is very hungry. Taillandier (Patrick Chesnais) takes him to dinner at the restaurant L’océan, a starred establishment. Marylou asks the waiter (Xavier Gallais) for a burger and fries. He notifies the girl, with a contemptuous tone, that they do not serve this kind of dish. Taillandier insists on serving a steak frites. Called the restaurant L’Océan in the film, it is in reality the restaurant La Gaîeté at the edge of the port of Cotinière.
Jean Becker wanted to make a film with Patrick Chesnais for several years. In 1983, he had already auditioned for The Killing Summer, but the production had not wanted him. When he started to develop this meeting between an old man and a young teenager, the director immediately thought of the actor.
This is the first film role for Jeanne Lambert, Jean-Yves Lafesse’s daughter.
La Gaîeté is a restaurant specialized in seafood, located at the edge of the port of La Cotinière in the town of Saint-Pierre-d’Oléron.
With its terraces, the restaurant La Gaîeté has a beautiful view of the port of La Cotinière. The establishment is specialized in seafood. It offers a catering service, private events and the organization of wedding receptions.
