"An American group of exchange students come to Paris to study the language and culture for a year. The film depicts the various interactions between the students and the instructors, including the pretty female director of the institute where they are enrolled." (IMDb)
This was a decent coming of age film directed by Willard Huyck. The cast is interesting: Miles Chapin, Blanche Baker, David Marshall Grant, Valerie Quennessen, Marie-France Pisier, Jean Rochefort, Debra Winger and Mandy Patinkin.
I remember Quennessen from Summer Lovers and everyone knows that Baker was in Sixteen Candles.
Winger, Chapin, Quennessen and Grant
Some say that FP is a romantic comedy but it´s definitely more drama with few jokes thrown in. Especially Mandy Patinkin´s character Sayyid is one crazy fella. You can´t see much skin in this one. Only Pisier undresses but she sure looks fine I need to watch her ´77 film The Other Side of Midnight asap.
While not nearly a classic, it´s a nice little movie with lovely french ladies, few sympathetic americans and one year they´ll never forget. Even Finland is mentioned couple of times
FP was released on dvd in 2008 but some people say that they have replaced the original soundtrack with elevator muzak. I own the finnish vhs tape with original tunes and all.
