| Oh NO!!! Not another French Growing Up Cliched Sex Farce!!!
Ok, so here we have this movie that I picked up, called "A La Mode", which literally means "With Ice Cream"... Which doesn't make much sense, and neither, coincidentally, does "Fausto", the original title of the movie. The title is in reference to the main character's last name, but it sounds actually like an italian version of 'Faust' which sounds more interesting than this movie.

The movie starts out with a cliche of the worst order. Fausto and his Mom and Dad are happily happily cycling along the mountains somewhere... Oh they are so happy.. NOTHING could spoil this day! Until... That's right, Fausto's parents are victim to The Vehicle That They Would Have Noticed If They Would Have Been Paying Attention!

After this rather unfortunate incident, Fausto becomes an orphan, (a rather old orphan it looks like, he's supposedly 17, where he LOOKS oh, 25).. All the kids hate him, where the Orphanage places him into another room of the orphanage, where he's greeted by a kid who can fart music. (hey, I'm not making this up). Of course Fausto is instantly charmed by this, and they become fat friends.

Soon Fausto is apprenticing at a local tailor where he finds the art making men's suits rather boring. When he comes across the local mechanic's daughter however, he comes across the brilliant idea to become what seems to be the only straight women's fashion designer ever.

A La Mode is very predictable from the get go, but admittedly, the actor playing Fausto won me over with his sweet charm. But, really, can't you choose something better?
