Storyline

When she arrives in the French region of Champagne in the company of her mother, her two sisters and her brother, sixteen-year-old Joss Grey is still just a teen-ager. At the time of her return to England, she has become a woman... What has happened is that Mrs. Grey fell ill at the beginning of their stay and was sent to hospital leaving the foursome in the care of Madame Zizi, the manager of the hotel where they are staying. She has a lover, Eliot, who gets lodging there. Unaware of the bond between him and the proprietor, Joss develops the attraction to the forty-year-old man. Eliot is so friendly... Eliot is so handsome... A bit enigmatic perhaps, but so charming... Written by Guy Bellinger

Wonderful
3 April 2002 | by (Leeds England) – See all my reviews

This film is a distant memory of Sunday afternoons in my teens when this film was still played in the UK. How can we get it released on video? The innocence of the girl falling in love with the thief, it was gripping. ten out of ten
