French Canadian Beach/Thriller/Teen/Comedy with Legendary Lake
27 March 2020 | by silvershadows-09863See all my reviews

I was compelled to write a review upon seeing this rarity. First of all, I don't speak French. This review is based entirely on the visual. It was not unusual to jump genres throughout a film during this time period. The film reminds me of the Beach/Go Go Girls/Spy Movie that were prominent in the early 1960's. In other words, a fun film, not to be taken seriously.

To give you an idea, I'll recap the opening five minutes. A dying man crawls through the snow during the opening credits. Young people talk outside a ski lodge. A hot girl walks by, one young man is greatly impressed. A man on a snowmobile finds the dead body in the snow. Inside the lodge, The Jaybees perform, while girls dance in bikinis. And on it goes. There are girls in bikinis having snowball fights and there is some serious business with the police probing the death of the man in the snow.

The print I saw is from an old vhs release and looked decent. The colour was a little muddied as one previous review mentioned, but that is the fault of the transfer and not the original film release. I hunted this down to see Ms. Lake so let us get to that. She looks good. Her hair is shorter, pulled back, but the bang that always wanted to fall over her eye is still there. Though not long enough to cover her eye. She seems to relish her role, which calls for an over the top, almost comical performance. She plays the heavy and she looks like she's having fun. Peace Veronica.
