Cockles & Muscles (Crustaces et Coquillages) in September

Peccadillo Pictures present the DVD release of Olivier Ducastel & Jacques Martineau’s Crustaces et Coquillages, in September, a charming comedy of sexual manners from the makers of Ma Vrai Vie A Rouen and Drôle de Félix.

Marc (Gilbert Melki) and Beatrix (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi) and their teenage children are to spend Summer at the seaside house of Marc’s youth. The summer heat soon kindles the senses as young love erupts, old flames fire up and sexual adventures ensue …the holiday is set to be anything but tranquil.


Cockles & Muscles is a modern fairy tale that culminates in a number of blissful ‘unions’ and a song. Yet it is also a tale in which there are no ‘bad guys’ except the rules that say ‘no’ and the taboos and repression that each of us carry inside, which prevent the expression of our innermost desires” – Olivier Ducastel & Jacques Martineau.

Released by Peccadillo Pictures on 25th September 2006, rated 15, Cockles & Muscles stars Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi (5x2); Gilbert Melki (Angel-A); Jean-Marc Barr (The Big Blue); and Edouard Colin. DVD extras include Karaoke, Outtakes & Bloopers, Dance Sequence, Interviews and a Q&A with the directors.
