Less of the scandal. - Bonjour Tristesse review by RhysH

Spoiler Alert
27/05/2017

Francoise Sagan's novel was described as scandalous but this 1958 film version directed by Otto Preminger takes the edge off the scandal and ends up as something rather shallow. Tired dialogue and clichéd performances.

David Niven plays David Niven and Jean Seberg looks lovely.
