Le Petit Bougnat 1970
1h 35min | Comedy, Drama | 6 May 1970 (France)
When the long awaited departure day arrives, a child coal merchant eager to go to summer camp, realizes that his mother forgot to register his name with the rest of the group.
Isabelle Adjani (about 15 at the time) portrays a girl who does not want to leave for a holiday camp.But fortunately,she falls in love with the counselor (perhaps after a good whacking?).
But the main subject (check the title) is the story of a very poor dirty boy (“bougnat” is a colloquial word for coal man)who does want to spend his holidays in the aforementioned holiday camp.But as he’s got nobody to pay for it,he will go secretly…
Strictly for children ,although the numerous Adjani fans might be interested in watching her first screen appearance.It’s harmlessly entertaining stuff and it’s better than its current rating.
