Storyline

Pierre, 44, contentedly divorced, takes his teen daughter to the Côte d'Azur along with his friend Jacques and Jacques' own teen daughter, Françoise. On the topless beaches of Saint-Tropez, Jacques and Pierre discuss marriage and being parents. Then, in a wild moment at a nighttime party, Françoise starts playing with Pierre, and one thing leads to another: they become lovers. After a couple of trysts, Pierre wants out, but Françoise declares her love for him and wants to tell her father about it. She does, but leaves out Pierre's name, so Jacques enlists Pierre's help in identifying who seduced his daughter. What will Pierre do? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An example of the best in French cinema
16 December 2004 | by (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a simple but really fine film; well scripted, sensitively directed by Claude Berri, and in places almost memorably acted. It is warm and to me rings true to life. I saw it as a TV presentation, but once I started viewing it I would have been most reluctant to be dragged away from the screen. The version I saw was dubbed in English - I would have preferred sub-titles but the dubbing was certainly better here than is often the case. Four years after it was released Stanley Donen re-filmed this story in Hollywood with a South American setting ("Blame it on Rio"). His film is 20 minutes longer and is presented as an overlong, straight and rather broad comedy, most of which is basically pretty boring to watch - it provides a classic example of the way in which Hollywood has so often demonstrated it can seldom attain the sensitivity shown by good French films.

I believe this film is still listed as available on tape, but in my view it would certainly warrant release as a DVD.
