I was not impressed
24 October 2002 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Youth adventure filmed in the countryside of the French-speaking part of Canada. The script formula is rather predictable, based on a bit of humor, a bit of mystery and a bit of flirt, and there is nothing really noteworthy in either the direction or the actors/actresses' performance. I think that there are hundreds of movies similar to Pas De Repit Pour Melanie, and, thus, I cannot find any important reason for its existence.
