Synopsis / Plot
Giorgio (Leonardo Ruta) is infatuated with his pretty but pretentious 16-year-old cousin Mignon (Celine Beauvallet) in this light comedy. Mignon is the wealthy cousin from Paris who vacations in Italy during the summer. Giorgio falls for the aloof female while his mother (Stefania Sandrelli) has an affair with her brother-in-law. Meanwhile, her bookstore-owner husband is carrying on with a female employee. Mignon learns her father faces jail time when he is found guilty of using bad building materials. Her experience with her Italian relatives coupled with her father's imprisonment helps bring her closer to Giorgio and his family.
