Not that bad after all...
1 February 2003 | by sossalemaireSee all my reviews

I'm gonna write it in english, though I doubt many people outside France have the occasion to see it...

I was introduced to this movie by a french TV show talking about DVDs, done by a rather funny guy who is used to bashing "navets" as we call bad movies in french. He said that while seeing the movie, he could imagine the producers discussing about making a teen movie with some pretty girls (check), gross scenes (check), a guy masturbating with some food (check), to ride the wave of American Pie. So I told myself it would be a "navet" to remember. In the end, I think the producer scene imagined by that guy was quite realistic; but the director managed to make an enjoyable movie with it, with weak or boring moments (some scenes seemed to be there just to make the movie a little longer), but with good moments. The actors are lovable, not always very good, but at worst adequate. Armelle Deutsch is great (she's just my type, that helps...). It's not an "all out attack" comedy; there are calm moments, and actually a much much better understanding of how young people manage their love lives than american pie. That's the kind of movie that I can't help liking, though I see many flaws in it (acting, directing, mandatory scenes for the genre that are just boring). Thus, I give it a 5/10.
