Why this was shot in cinemascope escapes me. Bardot's pretty figure would have been complimented more with a standard(potrait) ratio. Fritz Lang in "Le Mepris", also starring Bardot, says the "cinemascope is for shooting snakes or coffins".
Ultimately not very satisfying. The first and last scenes of the film are great and the rest is kinda whatever. Boring. Although Bardot is beyond sexy and very charismatic in this, making it entertaining enough, just not very engaging.
