Storyline

Summer 1939 in the Provence, France: the 14 years old Julien has a crush on his cousin Julia, who lives together with his family in their small hotel. Unfortunately she ignores him, because she's several years older. Then the hotel guest Charles enters the competition, a slimy twenty-something who lusts for the girl, despite the fact that he's engaged.

At least Hamilton gives us a bit of teenage male nudity this time!
5 July 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

What's wrong with this guy? As one reviewer elsewhere sarcastically suggested, Hamilton as a photographer at least, is such a legend in his own mind he thinks he is also a film director extraordinaire! This little work-out should have convinced even HIM to give it away!

As always in a Hamilton epic...I mean soft-porn flick, young girls cavort around in uninhibited fashion (presumably they are well paid in this regard). THIS time however when all things even out, all they have left is a 14 year old boy (he looks it too). Is this guy lucky or what? still with such attention as comes his way (pardon the pun) he can at least finally "relate" to his own girlfriend.

Gives new meaning to the term "Kissing Cousins"
