love, teenagers, beach, sun, ocean , surfing. and the love story. after the strange, vulgar, complicated films with/about teenagers from our time, Gidget represents a fresh air. because it propose a simple story. because all seems be result of a form of romanticism who defines , in same measure, existence of each teenager and his desires. and, sure, for Sandra Dee, who gives the expected image of next door girl neighbor. the need to be part of group. the emotion of first love. the choice. the charm of appearances. the fundamental lesson about life. the conflict, suspicion and disillusion. the acceptance of truth. all in the seductive, simple way. so, a nice experience.
