Did You Know?

Trivia:
In the English subtitles, several sections are purposefully translated incorrectly to preserve the humorous nature of the film. The list of strange names around Paris is changed to "Honolulu, Punxsutawney, Piccadilly, Massachusetts, Saskatoon and Machu Picchu;" and during the scene in which Wendy mispronounces "Xavier n'est pas ici..." the English subtitles say "Xavier eez not here..."See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Next to the telephone, on the board indicating how to say a roommate is not there in many languages, the colors on the German flag are wrong. (It looks like a Belgian flag rotated 90 degrees clockwise.)See more »
Quotes:
[Xavier is trying to convince Wendy to come with the gang to a night club]
Wendy:Xavier, I can't. I've... I've really got to write, okay?
Xavier:But, Wendy, you will write tomorrow. Come on!
Wendy:No. This is my diary. You know, I need to be disciplined.
Xavier:Wendy, you're too serious, you know!
Wendy:What do you mean, I'm too serious?
Xavier:You are not a nun! Come on! Come with us tonight, please!
Wendy:Listen! I'm not a nun! I just don't want to go out with... e-e-everyone! I don't like clubs and... and I don't like dancing. Maybe I'm not your idea of a typical trendy London girl, but techno music bulls me, all right? And if I'm a nun because I don't get out of this house enough for you guys, then that's too bad!

beautiful film about memories, 13 May 2003
Author: wildstrawbe from home

There are a few things in life that we can't experience more than once and the college experience is one of them. Especially if we're living in a foreign country and in a apartment with 6 wackos from 6 different countries. Xavier the main character leaves his tidy life in Paris, his ex-hippy mother and his beautiful girlfriend and goes to Barcelona to study spanish in order to get a job at the embassy. He falls in love with the wife of a french doctor and he makes friends that make him look at things differently. When Wendy's brother (Wendy is one of the room mates) comes from England the film starts to become a lot funnier. Well anyway, Xavier starts to see things differently with all his new friends and he probably lives something he will never forget and will change his life forever. Overall a very nice nostalgic film, which becomes even more interesting because of the multinational cast. I thought it was very interesting that you could see all these kids from different countries, all of them speaking different languages and having different cultures get along with each other and fun. I gave it a 9 out of 10 because I left the theatre with a smile on my face and thinking about things I haven't done yet while I'm still in college and would want to do before it's too late.
