Euro-musical with classic retro-American influences. NICE!
Lovely is the word! In fact - inspiring! Not a rip-off of alder American musical classics like Wes-side story - or even Grease (why not). Excellent musical score. Plenty of intricate choreography - make this french attempt at American musicals - tasteful and definitely worthy of a home video collection. Story is not contrived at all. Some trite twists are cleverly disguised as necessities for the plot development. Multiple love stories are in a widest french variety range one can imagine! From "The Graduate"-like - to "Three's the company"-like. A lot of fun to watch. i gave it 10 out of 10 - just for that fun-to-watch part - and excellent musical score.
