Andre, a Frenchman divorced from his American wife takes his teenage daughter, Nicole, on vacation with him. She's desperate to appear as a woman and not a girl, so in order to impress a local boy, she makes up more and more ridiculous stories, starting with Andre being her lover. Andre is desperate to make Nicole happy and so plays along with her crazy games, and the stories they make up get increasingly bizzare. Written by
When the father is waiting up for Nicole, he sees her walking towards the house. He runs to the couch to pretend he was already asleep. When he kicks off his shoes, one lands on the floor by the couch while the other appears to bounce off the table onto the floor on the far side of the table. We see Nicole walk in. Then when we see the father again, the straps of one of his shoes can be seen on the table by the ashtray. See more »
How did it go?
He's very impressed by you. He thinks you're a great guy.
What a relief.
And I told him I'm staying with you.
Isn't he jealous?
I told him there's nothing to be jealous of. That there's nothing between us anymore because of... Promise you won't get mad?
Why do I get so frightened every time you ask me that?

This movie, to me, is comfort food to my soul. I can't explain it. It's not an Oscar worthy picture, but there's a certain type of sweetness at the core of this movie, that seems to reach out and grab you. It's one of those movies that you break out and watch while you eat a quart of ice cream and cry over a long, tiring day. And somehow the movie manages to reach you. Maybe it's the way each character interacts. Or the wonderful island music that kind of takes you away. It has an innocence that touches you. A charm that many movies have lost. Maybe because it's such a simple story, it's not trying to hard to disarm you, so you get to enjoy the entire thing for exactly what it is. A cute, simplistic, coming of age romance. Three thumbs up ;]
