Beauty and wealth – these two words immediately come to mind when thinking of the Riviera's turquoise coastline. But do these features adequately describe the appeal of the scenery? What makes the Riviera so exceptional and unique?

 

 

 

 

Press responses

 

The title of the subject is short: "Riviera". The outcome of the cinematic four part documentary is highly complex. And if nothing else: supremely elegant.

With his Riviera-tetralogy, Lutz Hachmeister creates entertaining and intelligent television (…) Besides its lively variety of topics, the film further convinces due to its broad range of visual styles.
