The distinctive element in this poster is its use of cartoon-style drawing and cartoon figures. The central section of the poster has half a young man’s face on the left hand side and half a young girl’s face on the right hand side. Both are in colour on a white background. In the middle inbetween them drawn in a cartoon-style is an image of the Eiffel Tower and sun with clouds. Across the bottom of the poster on a yellow ground is the title of the film in English in large black and white lettering with cartoon images of the girl and boy on either side.
