Storyline

A beautiful and sophisticated teenager is placed in a regimented French girls' boarding school after her father apparently commits suicide over a business scandal. She immediately gains admirers -- a lustful middle-aged artist, a handsome young composer, a fellow female student -- as well as a jealous rival. With the help of her schoolmates, she attempts to elope with the composer, but the adults catch on to the plot, and she is locked into her room at night. Written by goblinhairedguy

Catherine Deneuve as Adelaide
13 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is much speculation that Catherine Deneuve, who debuted in this film, is one of the older girls. NOT. She is little Adelaide, the sleepwalking, ice cream thief and nocturnal mischief maker. All her scenes on the DVD are in the original French with English subtitles to retain Catherine's voice. The rest of the film is dubbed in English. The film was released when Deneuve was 13. It seems the scenes were shot when Catherine was maybe 10 or 11.

For its time, the film was very daring; nudity and lesbian overtones. When released in the US, the New York film board tried to censor and block the film. Fortunately, they did not succeed as the courts ruled in favor of free speech.
