Holy bad acting! Every line reading in this film is delivered like a voice mail recording.
Is Jean Seberg always this bad?
Jean Seberg comme une fille beaucoup trop proche de notre Père David Niven, un goujat de premier ordre ... le tout au grand dam de Deborah Kerr
A little masterpiece . So beautiful, complex but at the same time simple, Jean Seberg and Deborah Kerr were excellent. I don't think I ever seen a film that have been like this.
The bitterness is lying in the sun...
Itching for a remake. But no girl could ever possibly replace Jean Seberg.
hey frenchy !

A film of stupefying badness -- prettily made but empty, a piece of high-polish Bleak Chic. The story is lame and obvious, it goes exactly where any sentient movie goer will know it is going, and poor Jean Seberg is saddled with the lamest voiceover narration pre-BLADE RUNNER. A botch from start to finish.
i didn't really like the storyline, its very.. i don't know, i just didn't seem to like the story, I've read the book and i didn't quite enjoy that either. but Jean Seberg, isn't she lovely, so pretty and perfect and lithe. I didn't like how irrelevant Deborah was there, in my opinion she was upstaged by Elsa, which was perfectly acted!
Preminger is so hit or miss for me. I have finally realized that I really only like his noirs. I know many film critics/fans that I respect who consider this to be his true masterpiece, but I don't see it. It actually bored me.
Deeply flawed, but I found it enjoyable. Jean Seberg has moments of fleeting greatness, but on the whole she's just not very good. Mylene Demongeot is surprisingly wonderful here, and this being Preminger it's of course beautifully photographed.
jean seberg fits well to a françoise sagan thing.
Excelente filme, onde uma moça e seu pai, muito ricos e arrogantes, são órfã e viúvo. Conhecem uma excelente mulher q poderia ser madrasta e esposa excelente; mas provocam uma tragédia com suas humilhações e têm de conviverem com seus remorços para o resto de suas vidas! Excelente!!!!
What a bore. The only scene worth watching here is Juliette Gréco singing Bonjour Tristesse while Jean Seberg dances. ★★
Is this anything like the book?
