| Appallingly flimsy French comedy-drama...only for hardcore Foster-philes
15-year-old schoolgirl in Paris (Jodie Foster), living with her supermodel sister following the death of their mother, is eager to "get laid" and sets her sights on the trench coat-wearing detective who's been hired by a Jewish truck driver to locate the busty sister, whom he's smitten with. One of two foreign films from 1977 which Jodie Foster co-starred in (the other being "Casotto", filmed in Italy), a decidedly sloppy enterprise which blatantly trades on the young star's budding insouciance and wise-beyond-her-years sexuality to propel its minuscule plot. There are some brief flashes of skin (not Foster's) and endless chatter about love and sex, but no actual characters. As Max, hairy-chested Jean Yanne (who reportedly directed under a pseudonym) has a hangdog sort of charm, but his working-class personality isn't nurtured and his attraction to the teenager is never resolved. The soundtrack features the blurry ballad "When I Looked at Your Face", vocalist Foster's first foray into pop music. * from ****
