Some Things Never Change
11 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This early French comedy has a fetching young lady causing mayhem as she takes an aimless stroll through the streets of a town. Wherever our mademoiselle wanders, men turn to enjoy a long look, completely forgetting that they were approaching a lamp-post, table, baby's carriage, etc before they spied her and are therefore on a collision course with disaster.
