Dull French-Canadian flick
2 May 1999 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

There's not much to recommend about this dull movie, unless you are someone who can never see too much nudity. That's not to say that this is some brainless fleshfeast, because in fact it is a well-intentioned story of a young woman who learns some valuable life lessons after meeting a famous author. Unfortunately, the result is terribly predictable and rather boring, as it drags out a simple story and makes it an hour-and-a-half yawner. To be sure, I've seen worse, but it certainly wouldn't take any effort to find something better.
