This chapter of the ongoing onscreen saga of Berri alter-ego Claude Langmann, the director’s own version of Antoine Doinel, follows the character at 16, looking to lose his virginity. Berri’s take on the teen sex comedy has a warmth, charm, and frankness rarely seen from this familiar genre’s American counterparts.
