New York Times - 10/19/1979
A group of American college students in their junior year travel to Paris, France, to spend a year there "studying." Instead, they learn much about life and love.
From two of the writers of "American Graffiti" comes this romantically comic look at Yank college students spending a year in France.
Teetering on the verge of adulthood, these young men and women -- including wannabe songsmith Alex, snooty Laura, and less-than-confident Joel -- attend a Parisian school run by Monsieur and Madame Tessier. Student education ranges from cultural edification in the classroom to love lessons on the streets and in the cafes.
When the students start experimenting with a variety of sexual partners, they find that relationships are the hardest "exams" to pass of all!
- "French Postcards" had its world premiere at the 1979 Montreal Film Festival.
