I'm amazed I've found this movie, and that others remember it! A great flick I saw when I was young. Even then it was over 20 years old and it was still intriguing. The dark nature of the film would not be allowed for children to view these days... a shame. The movie focuses on a boarding school with a group of teenage girls, each representing a different country. The girls encounter dangerous villains and uncover secrets while having to use their cleverness to stay alive (from what I remember). It's a fun, unique film that has brought together the genres of thriller, mystery, and "family," if one would ever think it possible.
I wish I could find it on DVD these days. It really brings me back.
