A bevy of beautiful girls .....
23 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

.... spending a "beautiful Summer" (that's what the title claims) in a green country .Faustine is one of them .All the boys around woo her particularly Joachim(Francis Huster Nina Companez would use again for her notorious "Histoire Tres Bonne et Tres Joyeuse de Colinot Trousse -Chemise") but Faustine is not an easy girl;she has this immortal line "I haven't allowed you to caress my back" .

Harmless ,nay dumb stuff:the only good thing is George Marchal's presence.in a part unworthy of himself, he portrays the mature man .

The -harrowing- question is:will Faustine play around with all the young dudes or will she fall for a man who could be her father?
