Title Help

In reply to:

Dear Friends:

I need help identifying the name of an old movie, which I believe was released in the 1980's. It is the story of an American teenage boy spending a summer with one of his friends in Europe, perhaps Austria or Switzerland. The protagonist falls hopelessly in love with his friendís sister, who does not return the advances. The unreturned love makes the boy fall in deep depression, to the point of refusing to eat and go out. The boyís friendís mother (i.e., the hostess) is a kind woman in her thirties with her own marriage problems (i.e., a neglected wife). The hostess develops a sympathy for the protagonist, counsels him, and comforts him. A loving relationship ensues. I cannot remember the name of the movie, but keywords such as summer, abroad, foreign exchange keep coming back to mind.

Thank you for any suggestions.
