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

No longer children, but not yet women.
4 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a curiosity in that it is Catherine Deneuve's film debut. She is the little one that sneaks into the pantry at night pretending to be sleepwalking. I understand that most of her shots were removed from the film when it was sent to America, but this copy has all of them restored.

O course, the interest is in the moody and mysterious Catherine (Marie-Hélène Arnaud), who joins the school late in the year. She looks more adult than school child. Sylvie Dorléac plays the part of Adelaide, Sylvie is actually Catherine Deneuve's sister, as La Deneuve was Catherine Dorléac when she appeared in this film.

This film has been altered in another way. Georgina Spelvin (The Devil in Miss Jones) and, I'm guessing Yvonne Monlaur were added for American audiences. The luscious breasts and bodacious bootys were spliced in and the actresses appear no where else in the film. Their scenes are well lit also. You would think it daylight instead of night.
