The lighthearted comedy Zazie Dans Le Metro, an early directorial effort from Louis Malle, stars Catherine Demongeot as a 12-year-old girl named Zazie. Zazie is forced to travel to Paris when her mother wants to rendezvous with her lover. Zazie is left in the care of Uncle Gabriel (Philippe Noiret), an eccentric transvestite. Both with him, and on her own, Zazie meets a variety of unusual city dwellers, and gets into a series of misadventures that reach their greatest level of wackiness during a café food fight. The film is based on a novel by the distinguished French author Raymond Queneau. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

If you understand French humor and like Louis Malle movies then this is for you. We laughed out loud many times. In parts the movie was slow and sometimes to tell reality from Zazie's imagination or dreams, but still good.
This movie is SOOOO BAD, it's truely painful to watch. I can't believe it has a 4 star member rating. I know now to look at the written reviews, and not to go by the stars given. Please avoid this movie and put your time to better use. You'll be glad you did
