Valerie Allain has done the most for Franco-American relations since Benjamin Franklin
14 July 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I'm rating this a 9/10, but that doesn't mean it's as good as Citizen Kane. It just means that it is a highly effective presentation that accomplishes exactly what it hopes to do... and then some.

I was introduced to this gem whilst flipping through PBS. "Ka-ZOWIE... who's that babe? The film budget is kinda low... it's in French... cheezy music... that means MAYBE SHE'LL GET NAKED!" Well, she doesn't get naked (although I must echo an astute observation made by a fellow reviewer: "There's a girl who really knows how to not wear a bra!"). But what's interesting is that over time, as you watch in lustful, sweaty anticipation of the famous scene where she gets water spilled on her shirt, you ACTUALLY LEARN FRENCH! La vache! C'est incroyable! Moi, un américain bête... je parle français!
