Perfect lightheartedness
9 January 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Perfect lightheartedness. The basic concept of a young teacher stumbling clumsily into a promise of flashing her boobs to the schools looser volleyball team if they will win, turns like a frog into a prince by a delicate script, sensitive directing and an Audrey Hepburn/Audrey Tautou kind of lead actress. The film doesn't lie about it's simplicity, but it deals with it in admirably good taste. It's by no means a American pie-(or worse)-clone, or even "ecchi", and has even a sort of 50'ish feel to it, which is quite an accomplishment given scene's like: A group of pupils are running uphill behind a bicycling teacher with a whistle, while yelling " tits,tits" as encouragement song. It's a warm hearted feel good comedy. Nothing more, nothing less, but very well done. The only minus point would be that beside the lead actress the other roles stay sketchy: Having an Audrey Hepburn, it misses a Cary Grant. Not as a romantic angle, the film doesn't have nor need that. It's about how to inspire adolescents in a teacher- pupil relationship, and having the heart in the right place.The lather is something the teacher needs to trust more as her core virtue, but she doesn't discover that by counter play based on character development in her pupils, her co-teacher,her ex boy-friend or, her principal, but by a side story about her past. In itself very sweet, but dramaturgically it keeps the film light and nostalgic, where it could have gained some depth. Neverteless it's an truly enjoyable movie. Such a pity that films like that often get underrated.
