The French Kissers

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Part of “Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2010.” Director Riad Sattouf in person.

Move over, Beavis and Butthead: Pimply-faced 14-year-old Hervé (Vincent Lacoste) and his heavy-metal sidekick Camel (Anthony Sonigo) are on the scene in this hilariously crude yet touching comedy from comic-book artist Riad Sattouf. When Hervé catches the eye of his beautiful classmate Aurore (Alice Trémolière), it turns his whole sexually frustrated world upside down. A movie for everyone who remembers the glories of first love, and the horrors of premature ejaculation.
