For some reason the copy of this film that I watched only contained English subtitles for about a tenth of what was said on the screen. That's OK since the great dialogue is hardly what we're here to watch. What a hoot seeing the sleepy little mid-50s Saint-Tropez! The ultra saturated colors are gaudy in the extreme as is Mr. Vadim's wife, daughter and mistress. I am in awe at the bags of money this film raked in.
The movie was okay, but seeing the way the camera loved BB was historical. She lathered female sexuality all over the screen as it hadn't been done yet. Oh sure, there had been beautiful women, sexy women, unclothed women, sexier scenes. But the camera absolutely loved her; every centimeter of skin, every curve, each teasing pout. She became the brass ring on the hetero male merry-go-round--a legend cha cha cha.
