Seventeen-year-old Timothy (Dean O'Gorman from Pork Pie) is facing suspension after a misguided prank. His parents hope the French-Canadian exchange student they’re hosting will settle Tim down, but when ‘Michel’ turns out to be ‘Michelle’ — and spunky — plans go awry. Coming of age and cross-cultural comedy ensues as Tim tries to court his Montreal mademoiselle. Shot around Avondale College, the award-winning NZ-Canadian film got a special mention from the Children’s Jury at the 1996 Berlin Film Festival. The cast includes Angela Bloomfield and Milan Borich.

It's a long time since I’ve seen a movie that gives as much sweet-tempered, innocent fun as Wayne Tourell’s Bonjour Timothy. And, because it’s a New Zealand-Canadian co-production, it has to rate as our local industry’s most good-natured comedy yet.
– Nicholas Reid, North & South, February 1996
