Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This specialized film by femme director Jacqueline Audry is strictly a lightweight, skim-the-surface drama with a touch of insider irony (well-known actors do cameos in which they parody their own screen personae, or simply spoof themselves). As in most of her films, Audry focuses on a female lead, this time an eighteen-year-old named Sophie (Agathe Aems) who is attractive enough to draw the active attention of a series of men. Sophie is hitchhiking from her native Belgium to the French Riviera, and along the way she meets various "types" -- a boxer (Roger Coggio), a manager (Pierre Mondy), a masher (François Perier), and several others. Nothing here to give competition to Audry's daring Olivia, a film before its time about lesbians.
