This is actually a good movie!
3 November 2008 | by couts_aSee all my reviews

I was way too young to have seen this movie...about 8 years old peeking at the Cinemax late night movies, but I do remember it quite well. The main character Pierre was so sweet and loving that he seemed too good to be true, especially for the love interest...Elisabeth (Dayle Haddon). The funniest parts are when the weekend gets started and they are at his circus hanging out. He has a lot of "carny" friends that care for him and that part works well, but the usual sex stuff wasn't so overboard as most French films go. The ending was touching and through the whole movie you are rooting for Pierre! If you like older foreign films this is a must see.
