I saw the film "L'Initiation" one late Friday night on television and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Granted, it is not a masterpiece of cinema. The plot is simple and the English dub from its original French language does not help much. Nonetheless, what I thought was going to be a dumb, cheap exploitation "skin flick" turned out to be a decent film that had a good chemistry between the leading characters (The teacher and the student), and erotic scenes that were tastefully done. I also found the leading actress, Chantal Renaud, to be quite talented, photogenic and appealing; she brought a sense of honesty and true tenderness to her character which, in my opinion, these types of films usually lack. By this promising performance one wishes she had acted in more films. I don't know if this title has ever been released on video, but if it ever is I would like to see it again, especially in its original French sound track.
