Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?
30 January 2003 | by MulligaSee all my reviews

Ah, Mireille... Okay, Valérie Allain is super-chouette and really, really hot in this educational film series. Presented in half-hour lessons complete with crazy interjections by a professor, a mime, and puppets, the show concerns the story of Robert and Mireille. It uses the good old method of throwing you into a foreign language - no English at all, and I think it's for the better.

So the acting isn't Oscar (or even Cesar) winning...who cares? It's a decent story, told with a sense of humor, and shot entirely in France. You do have to know quite a bit of French to understand it (I took four years in high school and I still only understand half of it).

School teachers, take note: all the guys in your French class will pay attention with Mireille around...
