Storyline

Camille, 17, is caravan camping with her family at a lake in Gironde, where she's bored, pouty, and, toward her parents, foul-mouthed and rebellious. Her summer boyfriend, Fred, seems too young for her, so she starts hanging around Blaise, the camp's new sailing instructor, in part to make Fred jealous. Blaise is twice as old as Camille, is married to the camp manager's sister, and has a child. He's also homely and down and out. Blaise and Camille both seem to have a point to prove, but where can this flirtation go? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Stereotypical French movie--pretty ho-hum, but with good performances from the two leads
23 October 2012 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty stereotypical French movie in a lot of ways. It takes place entirely in a holiday camp (the French always seem to be on vacation in their movies). It also involves a middle-age man having a torrid affair with a sexy teenage girl. They call these May-December affairs in the English-speaking world, but with the French it might be more April-December (or maybe late March) as the characters, and sometimes the actresses as well, often seem to be a little shy of eighteen.

To his credit, Dennis Lavant does not look to be in December of his years (early October maybe) and, unlike with some French films, it's not completely inconceivable that a bored teenage girl camping with here parents could fall for him, and even leave her more age-appropriate boyfriend. Of course, his character is also a paroled convict, married with children, and working at the camp for his brother-in-law. Pretty much everyone objects to the affair--the brother-in-law, the girl's parents, her friends, the other camp employees--but the two simply cannot resist each other. It's good old French amour fou, but it turns out to eventually be a VERY extreme case of it, and the film eventually becomes more than a little implausible.

Lavant is the more famous actor here, but mention should also be made of his co-star, Isilde LeBesco. Yes, she is kind of ordinary looking in the face. Yes, she's not terribly convincing as a 17-year-old. But she has one of the most incredible natural bodies I've ever seen and she ALWAYS shows it off in every movie she's in. Besides, she's certainly not a bad actress, and being from a more permissive country with no Hollywood reputation to protect, she takes on some interesting, if not always successful (or particularly believable)roles. She's one of a long line of French actresses, who are simply more sexy and uninhibited on the screen than the vast majority of their Hollywood peers. This is easily the worst movie of hers I've seen, but she and Dennis Lavant do manage to rise above the ho-hum material to make it marginally worthwhile.
