Review:

A sensitively handled study of pedophilia, told with a comic flare. Remy is a lounge pianist who loses his wife in a car accident. His fourteen-year-old step-daughter, Charlotte, wants to continue to live with him, but her biological father, a drunken clubowner, doesn't feel that this is right. She tries living with her father, but misses the comfort of Remy and eventually runs back to him. Her father relents and accepts her wish to live with her step-father. What begins as a simple reunion of father and daughter quickly takes on a whole new meaning when Charlotte confesses her love for Remy one night.

Ariel Besse was only 15 when she made this film and performed the nude scenes. It was her first role. Her parents sued the distributors for the poster, which shows her breasts, as it was exhibited on billboards around France without their permission. They lost the case.

In the case of Miss Besse, her parents have sued the ''Beau Pere'' distributors and producers for a poster showing her sitting, barebreasted, on Patrick Dewaere's knee. The actress's mother said that the poster was put up without her permission, and that its context - shown on billboards all over France - made a use of Miss Besse that was exploitative; in contrast to what she said was the delicacy and sensitivity with which the film itself treated her.
The judge ruled in favor of the producers, saying that there were scenes in the film that were even more explicit than the poster, and ignoring the point that the context provided by a street poster and a film may be so different as to alter the sense of what is displayed.
