Hervé and his mulleted best mate Camel are fourteen and in possession of some serious hormones. They’re forever fantasising over the girls in their class, but can barely work up the guts to talk to them. So when Hervé inexplicably catches the eye of cool-girl Aurore, he’s suddenly pushed straight into the strange world of hand-holding, tongue-kissing and heavy petting. But his first girlfriend, his unquenchable libido, and his best friend are set on a collision course, and before long Hervé is forced to choose between them.
Hailed by critics the world over, and a massive box office smash hit in its native France, THE FRENCH KISSERS is a sexy and bawdy blast.
