Little White Lies (Les Petits Mouchoirs)
A group of friends go ahead with their annual holiday in the south of France whilst one of their number remains in intensive care in a hospital in Paris.
'Little White Lies' evidently was a big hit in it's native France. The film's plot, such as it is, about a group of friends working their way through their tangled relationships and romances is very reminiscent of Hollywood's 'The Big Chill' which amazingly is now nearly thirty years old.
'Little White Lies' is quite amusing and the water resort setting presents a very different and interesting view of France from that which is usual in their films. However the film is at least half an hour too long and consequently outstays it's welcome.
