Light-hearted gallantries in the green landscapes of Avallonnais;as usual,this Jean Gourguet's effort was filmed on location,with his favorite Young actor Maurice Sarfati (see also " Maternité clandestine" " La P......Sentimentale");who,once again,in spite of his youthful looks ,is obviously too old (24) for the part of a teenager who just failed his high school diploma .
Inspired by Colette's "Le Blé En Herbe " and the eponymous movie by Claude Autant-Lara which was released the year before,Gourguet lets a Young teenage girl tell the tale of her first love :she falls for Kiki but he has an affair with the woman who accompanies the teacher he has private lessons with.
This is bland and predates what Eric Rohmer will do later ,in a much more intellectual (and IMHO) boring way.
