The better French version of John Hughes movies to come
I saw this movie when I was 15 and instantly developed a crush on Sophie Marceau. But seeing it again as an adult wasn't quite the experience it had been. It's sweet and lovely and teen-age painful, establishing the tone if not the actual plot for 80s John Hughes movies - it's a bit deeper than and not as wacky as "Sixteen Candles" and Marceau has a bit better screen presence than Molly Ringwald.
I was disappointed that it wasn't as wonderful the second time around (I've become jaded) but it was still entertaining.
