We Found This Film in Quebec
12 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We located this film on NTSC VHS in French Canada....it is quite controversial because of Eva Ionesco and is very hard to find these days....Mimsy Farmer as a 25 year old prostitute......Pascal Sellier has his first romantic experiences and is teased by his friends... .....At 25, Helena (Mimsy Farmer) is "middle-aged" for a prostitute. When young Julien's callow friends try to pick her up (not knowing that she is a prostitute), she allows Julien (Pascal Sellier) to win her favors......Occasional nudity and sexual situations..........Eva Ionesco has a classic appearance ......the version we have is 1 Hour and 35 Minutes long and is in French with no English subtitles.
