I had a real difficult time trying to read the subtitles while at the same time checking out the beautiful young french girl.

I love this. A great story, and a great vehicle. Object-romance always gets me.

That just erased about 45 years…took me back to being a teenager in Europe. It wasn’t a Lambretta …although my brother had one of those, a Vespa,and a DKW among others. The Uncle’s smile makes this sentimental clip great and any girl that helps to wash the scooter is a keeper! It is the simple pleasures we remember.

Thats proof a vechicle of any sort is not just a pile of metal and rubber. Sometimes its the stich that holds the fabric of family together….. and that a kool ride is will always get you the pretty girl.

I agree Kelly, what a wonderful evocative film and something the whole family is evidently proud of. In these dark and troubled days in a which we live, an uplifting film which restores your faith in human nature….a little!
