Vic (Sophie Marceau) is a spunky 13-year-old French girl who is trying to make it through adolescence despite the shaky relationship of her likable parents (Claude Brasseur and Brigitte Fossey). Blossoming into a young woman, she discovers the Parisian social scene and all its

vices--boys, dancing, drinking--through a series of boums, teen parties. The situations are just what you'd expect from such a film--cute, charming, funny, awkward, and nostalgic. What separates this film from scores of others just like it is the bubbly Marceau. A huge box-office hit in France, LA

BOUM spawned an unimaginatively titled sequel, LA BOUM II, in 1983. (In French; English subtitles.)
