Dany Robin is Naughty Martine in this ooh-la-la French romantic comedy. Set at a fancy girl's boarding school in the French Alps, the film casts Robin as a natural-born fibber, whose tendency to weave tall tales causes ever so much trouble for her parents, her teachers and her classmates. Leaving the confines of the school to become a "woman of the world," the wide-eyed Martine links up with The Baron (Lucien Baroux), a slick con artist. Romance enters Martine's life thanks to the timely arrival of an avalanche -- followed by the appearance of handsome mountain guide Pierre (Henri Vidal). But when Pierre turns out to be a jerk, Martine finds true love in the arms of worldly composer Brevannes (Claude Dauphin).
