Gallic adolescents looking to lose their virginity, win hearts and gentle laffs in French teen comedy, “Just About Love?” Feature bow by Lola Dollion — daughter of French helming vet Jacques Dollion — pic has a John Hughes sensibility with a Euro sexual frankness that Ferris Bueller could only dream about. Modest film will score solid B.O. with French release this June. However, without American pies or other such gross-out motifs, script may be too sophisticated for international teens. Fests may want to sample.

Fifteen-year-old best buddies Julie (Christa Theret) and and intellectually earnest Elodie (Lucie Desclozeaux) make a pact to lose their virginity before summer vacation commences. As their French rural school breaks up for vocational training days, they examine their prospects from among their high school colleagues. Mission is rapidly accomplished, but tangled consequences severely test the friendship of the distaff duo. Doillon’s helming is simple, clean and effective. Breezy, respectful script has a smart eye on contempo teens and refrains from imposing artificially mature wisdom. Perfs are convincingly natural, with Theret and Gael Traveres as Vincent standing out from the talented pack. Tech credits are as fine as a French summer’s day.
