User Reviews

Held promise but delivered a pretentious piece of fluff.
20 October 1999 | by FATLOSERSee all my reviews

This waste of time really changed one long held viewpoint of mine: the French don't make sanitary, vaccuous, overly polished, HOLLYWOOD type movies. The entire film is so utterly bland despite the subject matter that it becomes very irritating to endure. Why make a movie about runaways if it isn't cinema verite? The locations are stunning, the production value is, of course, excellent, and the very young female lead is mesmerizingly beautiful.(although utilized very inappropriately here by the direction) Beyond this,the film offers nothing but empty promises and a very predictable storyline. Please save yourselves of this irritation and watch "Kids","Streetwise" or "Salaam Bombay" for a palatable version of the subject matter this film hints at.
