I first saw this film six months after I returned from my junior year in the south of France. I laughed so often and shook my head in embarrassment so much at myself and when it was only part way done, I wondered how any writer could possibly have seen all those quirks in so many different people and hit them all so exactly dead on the money. I recognized my friends over and over and well, it was such a pleasantly-acted film and a completely lovely story that even after twenty years I remembered it very fondly and longed to see it again. I finally found it and you know, it still brings a misty eye and an out loud laugh and a warm smile to look back over the years and remember how young we were, how curious and serious and silly all at once, and how, when we weren't looking, someone out there was, and knew us better even than we knew ourselves. Même si all you'll ever know of French is 'Bonjour', you simply must have this charming film.
