37°2 in the Morning...

The iconic Plage des Chalets (Chalets Beach)

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, I felt the need to share with you my attachment to a particularly romantic place that always gave me the impression of being in distant lands, an imaginary country, a wild space. This place is the Plage des Chalets (Chalets Beach) located in Gruissan, a Mediterranean coastal village in South West France.

This is also the main location of the famous movie Betty Blue (original French title is 37°2 le matin, meaning "37°2 in the morning") shot by Jean-Jacques Beineix in 1985. The French film director chose the neighborhood of chalets on stilts, facing kilometers of sandy beach, as the setting of the birth of the destructive passion between Betty (Béatrice Dalle) and Zorg (Jean-Hugues Anglade), one of the most legendary couples of French cinema.

Zorg and Betty start their journey together in a chalet on the beach. It’s all very appealing: It’s simple and it meets basic needs. There’s one room where they eat, sleep, make love and, of course, have violent disputes. Betty is a cyclone and Zorg loves it: it’s the crazy energy that keeps them alive. Who cares if Betty throws all the pans out of the window or flings the beer bottles across the room. Material things don’t matter...
