Storyline

Two years after the first "Boum", Vic - now 15 and a half years old - has a very calm love life, actually no boyfriend at all. Her parents are happily together again, Grandma Poupette thinks about finally marring her long-term boyfriend. But then Vic meets Philippe and is overcome by his charm. She's in heaven again and considers going all the way this time - a step, that her girlfriend Penelope already has taken. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Longing for Vic back in the day
23 May 2005 | by kenichikuSee all my reviews

After over 20 years, I can say that I do miss this type of coming of age film (Breaking Away, My Bodyguard, 400 Blows) done before the modern age of jaded irony & cynicism. It's for those old enough to miss the young subjects of Truffaut, only without the melancholy. Even the cheesy but sprightly tunes invite nostalgia. Like Bardot before Marceau, her precocious innocence here holds up against French frankness. Sophie has yet to recapture the same appeal even after limited exposure to her more grown-up international efforts (Braveheart, 007), even Lambert Wilson's mature exposure (Matrix Reloaded, Catwoman) come off now as well, ironic & cynical.
