Belgium and the sexual revolution.
This movie is not entirely autobiographical: I think the author takes his life as a model to narrate us the problem of the upbringing youth and their sexual apprenticeship. He starts from his native Harelbeke, a little town in Belgium. His first sexual experience is with "sale culotte" which remains a no-event. He must learn his first kiss, and after all his beginnings are very romantic. Then he moves to Brussels, the university with the demonstrations against Vietnam and where he hopes to start his career as a writer. The film develops in free sketches which show his marriage and divorce and all the lovely girls he meets. After all this film can be shown to kids of ten years old and with some comment by the parents I am sure they will learn a lot which can be very useful for their adult life.
