...Bonjour Tristesse (1959)

There but for the grace of Deborah Kerr goes Bonjour Tristesse, a piffle about pretentious French people (played by British and American actors) and their summer on the Riviera. The self-absorption runs knee-deep in this display of vapid character flaws and brings to mind current magazine darling Paris Hilton. I found myself not caring about the wet and amorous exploits of the fictional teenager who's father pours her champagne and who won't learn from her experiences.
