Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Her ass is a song"
- anonymous bus passenger, appreciating Brigitte Bardot
Rating: 2.5/5 -- We can't recommend this little item as a sample of the best in Gallic films. It is clumsily put together and rather bizarrely played. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 4/5 -- A great movie to eat ice cream to. Brigitte Bardot - WOW!
Rating: C+ -- Adding up to hardly anything more than a bunch of snapshots of Bardot posturing as a sex kitten in various stages of undress. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: B -- By today's standards the film is tame, but back in 1956, Vadim's feature debut was sensational and scandalous, catapulting Brigitte Bardot (who was married to Vadim) to the status of international sex icon. Full Review
Rating: 74/100 -- More a vestige of 1950s film scandal than a significant work based on its content.
Rating: 3/4 -- breezy and enjoyable-often funny and sometimes even a little sad
Q Network Film Desk
Rating: A -- ...a social document of the ways that a woman's allure can fuel, destroy, and build the dreams of men who fall under her spell. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
The astounding success of Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman revolutionized the foriegn film market and turned Brigette Bardot into an international star. Bardot stars as Juliette, an 18-year-old orphan whose unbridled appetite for pleasure causes trouble on the French Riviera; her staid husband Michel (Jean-Louis Trintignant) endures beatings, insults, and mambo in his attempts to tame her. A milestone of cinematic naughtiness. French with English Subtitles.
In Roger Vadim's directorial debut, his then-wife, Brigitte Bardot, plays Juliette, a sumptuous orphan beauty who sparks an incendiary and erotically charged love triangle between herself and three men who desire her. Spending her days barefoot and barely working in the town tabac, Juliette loves to listen to the jukebox at the local bar and saunter past the men in town; all the while, she has eyes only for local thug Antoine. Millionaire Eric Carradine desires Juliette as much as he desires Antoine's family's oceanfront property. After being coldly spurned by Antoine, Juliette is rescued from a return to the orphanage when Antoine's timid younger brother, Michel (Jean-Louis Trintignant), proposes marriage, at the suggestion of Carradine. As the unlikely couple works hard at achieving a semblance of happiness, the dark forces that dwell inside Juliette's restless spirit force her closer and closer to Antoine. Vadim lets Bardot revel in the CinemaScope and Technicolor beauty of the film, and the simmering mambo-infused soundtrack traces the plot's erotic undercurrents as they drive all the characters toward an inevitable climax of erotic and violent explosion, personal revelation, and a New Wave definition of love and romance.
Brigitte Bardot plays a sensuous, orphaned woman who is intimately involved with three men in a small seaside French town, where dark tensions and secrets abound. This sizzling film helped to establish Bardot as an international star and sex symbol; it was the directorial debut of her former husband, Roger Vadim, and also stars Jean-Louis Trintignant and Eric Carradine.
- The film was Roger Vadim's directorial debut.
