The Frog Prince

Paris, 1960: a wicked city where English ingénue Snowden, sent to polish her French, acquires a sentimental education, fending off lecherous frogs with varying degrees of Gallic smarm. The film, with David Puttnam as executive producer, has a nostalgic Film on Four blandness about it, although Posy Simmonds' semi-autobiographical screenplay adds a little spice with its sharp ear for dialogue and its broadly farcical slant, indulging much humour at the expense of those funny French.
