TEACHER LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE!
12 August 2003 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Master of French comedies Claude Zidi is a well known director of lovely movies and this is one of the first that stars French comedian Pierre Richard who looked more than a white poodle but you can forgive him the sign of the times.

The movie starts with great shots from Jane Birkin (the wife from Serge Gainsbourg) who is a big superstar. Everybody wants to take photos from her (also a friend of Pierre Richard) and one moment Pierre sees a photo from her... But he not alone, also his pupils as he is a teacher in maths...and son of a politician who is fighting against sexy posters in his towns. Of course you can guess the rest, Pierre lands by Birkin and the whole press jumps on it while the career of his dad looks to be destroyed. Why do I all tell this? The story isn't important at all, this is just fine entertainment in where you can have a good laugh for 90 minutes and you can even see Jane Birkin.
