Delightful French comedy
21 January 2002 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This is quite simply a delightful comedy about the love adventures of a young French man. It is "naughty" without ever being vulgar and a refreshing change from the crudeness and the violence seen in many films today. It is even better if you can understand its original language (French) for it is full of quaint and transparent allusions.
