Great movie for Natassia Kinski
17 September 2018 | by HollywoodshackSee all my reviews

This film is fun to watch over again about how Kinski, an American, forms a secret club with a group of girls at her Swiss boarding school to meet the guys in the school across the bridge. The matches misfire hilariously until Kinki meets the love of her life she met on the train before starting school. She was "the American girl" that was to straighten the misbehaving girls out, but of course she leads them to plenty of mischief in a boat house. The love scenes for Kinski are what makes it much better than your typical teen sex comedy. Great music from Francis Lai (Love Story) too.
