A film for the creation of a start, but nothing more than that. A camara always following around Bardot without clothes, without rythm and even worst, without structer. Never the less, two interesting aspects, the color (it’s quite new in the French cinema and you will see some resemblesse to Le Mepris) and the incredible influence of the american cinema (the last scene remember me of Huston in Night of Iguana).
The movie that made Brigitte Bardot a sexpot and international star. Deservedly so as she fires up the screen as temptress full of sexual energy and is the main reason to see. Beautiful St. Tropez in the mid 1950s is also a wonder to behold but the story lacks depth and is mostly about a woman who want to be a "free bird and have fun with men" even after she gets married. It's non-moralistic ending though is good.
