I have first heard and seen this title years ago in Playboy. They had an article on it with some stills from the movie. The next time, was collection of stills from the Movie plus addition stills in a coffee table book. I finally caught the movie on Cinemax and had taped it. It was years later that I was able to buy a Tape and now I have the DVD. This movie was enjoyable on several levels. One, it had an element of comedy in it which kind of tempered the darknesss of the times. It had a pretty decent, although maybe a tad shallow, story. The DVD quality was very good all things considered. Unlike the others I have, A Summer in St.Tropez. Bilitis, & Premiers Desirs, this one was not through New Star. Anja Shute ( Julia ) was, in my opinion, the show stealer. She is a cutie. She was also able to show a range of emotions, which was good. Julian wanted Julia, but she wanted Charles and Charles wanted anything in skirts. The female hired help had a thing for Julian ( lucky kid ). It sounds a bit convoluted, but isn't really. Just life on the farm I guess. There is Nudity, but not an over abundance of it and it is done tastefully. There is also some implied sex. For me, it is a fun movie that I still like to watch from time to time.

This VHS version is dubbed into english, and the quality of the recording is not the best. I would recommend getting Tender Cousins instead (same film but in french with english subtitles).
I first saw the french version of this film on cable when I was 15. I was glued to the set - The beautiful young ladies, fantastic cinematography, and wonderful scenery from the french countryside in 1939.
The plot is a little thin, namely that Julien, a young maturing lad has just returned home at the family farm, and he starts discovering the ladies, or more appropriately that they start discovering him. However his heart desires his beautiful cousin, and alas she doesn't seem too interested in him, at least not at first.
There is quite a bit of nudity in this film, but it is tasteful, albeit often gratuitous. I definitely would give the film 5 of 5 stars, but I gave it 4 because the dubbed voices aren't the best - you'd think that with a french title it would have been in french, but it's dubbed in english.
Also, female viewers will probably think the film is stupid because of the gratuitous nudity, whereas most heterosexual men will probably appreciate the film as an art form.

Ok, picture this. You are 14 years old and live on a farm. War breaks out and all the men on the farm and the surrounding village are sent off to fight. You find yourself surrounded by women and girls. As the only "man" around, naturally, you start getting a lot of attention. So far, this sounds like every teenage boy's fantasy, right?

Too bad life is not that simple. Sometimes, the attention you're getting is not coming from the one you want. And the one you want, wants none of your attentions. Our young man, Julien, is in love with his cousin. But the cousin is in love with an older man, who went off to war. She does not take him seriously. That is the plot of this movie.

Lots of teenage romance, some light drama, and a pretty good dose of comedy. Highly recommended.

This IS a David Hamilton film. He is considered a "notorious" director, but frankly most of his films are so notorious I can barely stay awake watching them. This film has a WWII period setting and it is surprising long on plot for a David Hamilton film (where the "plot" is often just an excuse to get from one naked nubile girl to the next). Still while the very lame ending is true to his usual form, the highest compliment I can pay this film is that it is a typical mediocre French film of that era for most of its running time. Hamilton was considered a great photographer and if you enjoy his typical slather-some-more-vasoline-on-the-camera-lens visual style, you'll probably enjoy this.

The Naturist aspect of his film is fitted to his vision, fairly so, however a more realistic and authentic view of nudism is found in the DVDs here on Amazon like Mother Naturists and Rituals of Summer -- the later being a personal favorite.

Interesting coming of age story of Julien, and his love for his cousin, who loves someone else. Along the way, he gets "experience" in the ways of love, from many women. There's a bit of love in the air, and everyone, nearly, seems to get in on the action. Not a bad little film, not a classic, with attractive people. I was lucky enough to find a region "0" disc that would play in my "Cyberhome" disc player, as this might not, even though it's region free, and most of the previous versions were Region 2, which would definitely not do so. [Aside: I understand, to a point, the idea of region coding, to protect copyright and all, but with the access people have nowadays, on the internet, it seems a bit pointless.] Anyway, a decent little film. [Not for those who might be offended by sex and nudity.]

Easy to follow coming of age movie set in pre-WWII France. Mediocre script and acting with lots of female nudity and very little male nudity. Some parts of the plot have holes but can be overlooked. Movie plays out like a teenage boys fantasy.
