Now this is what I call public service television.

The link above will take you to RAI (Radiotelevisione Italiana)'s site where you can via web streaming see all three parts of Laetitia Casta's first major role as an actress, the miniseries La Bicyclette Bleue from 1999. Not only is it free, but she actually makes it to the end credits of part three alive (as opposed to Rue des plaisirs, Gitano, Luisa San Felice and the in-production The Girl With The Golden Eyes - in the book the title character dies, and director Catherine Breillat is a misanthropic sod). Unfortunately it's in Italian, but you don't need to speak any language to appreciate Laetitia; forget the teeth, we're talking classic here...

Forgive me for speaking such blasphemy, but I cannot work out who Laetitia Casta is in this movie.

She's Lea, the main character.
