Not memorable, far from it..... But fun...
28 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film numerous times, I can't say its a memorable film, because it isn't. The film is poorly acted and the plot is very lame and predictable.

However, I can't say the film isn't well crafted. Sure, for a comparison with films like Citizen Kane or Vertigo, two films I love and worship as being the best motion pictures of all time, this film REALLY doesn't stand with them. But the fact it's filmed in Black and white gives the film a cool touch of art.

One fun filled fact to the film, the sexy lead actress, Danielle Ouimet.

She creates a good example of the "dumb blond" cliché created not long afterwards....

I loved the music, very precise on the music of the time.... A mix of classical and rock, very interesting.

And, not only is the music interesting. Though the story may be very simple and ordinary, it does present a very accurate look of sexuality in the sixties society and how the sexual revolution was heading on....

A very average film that will most likely be forgotten not long after seeing it, but a fun filled array of music and sexy images.
