Crowd pleasing film
I saw by chance this French crowd pleaser on a long distance flight, I would otherwise not have seen it, as it was barely released anywhere. It is very enjoyable and entertaining. In 1969, Paul, a lothario sports journalist in a local newspaper of the French city of Reims, decides to organize for publicity reasons a women football team. And his secretary, the shy but beautiful Emmanuelle, will turn out to be one of the team's stars. The main actress, the very pretty Vanessa Guide, is a revelation. Nice period recreation also. A letdown is that the journalist's character is quite grating. Based, with a lot of liberties, on a true story of the first female football team in France.
