Despite attempting for a UK PG rating at the time producer "David Puttnam" was told by BBFC censor "James Ferman" that the film had to be given a 15 as the story concerned an underage girl losing her virginity. Puttnam later claimed that the star was over 18 and the film contained no nudity or obscene language, and the 15 certificate had lost the film most of its intended audience. See more »
This movie is very hard to find. I know that because I tried to find it for several years without success.
My wife always said this was her favourite movie from her childhood, and she asked me to get it for her. I searched the internet and my local Blockbusters for years, and eventually gave up. Last year though, she asked me for it again, as a present for her 40th birthday. Well, I had to find it somehow. Eventually I found someone on eBay selling the American version of the video in Canada. I bought it and arranged for it to be posted to someone in Canada who copied it into DVD and then sent it to me. Success, sort of. The picture quality is not great, but it was the best I could do, and it has now become by far the most expensive DVD in my collection.
So did she appreciate it? Sort of. Certain aspects are pretty dated, although there are some nice shots of Paris, and Lisa Snowdon is really good - I don't know why she did not become a big star.
