In Paris, when the owner of the nightclub Mississippi in Pigalle Paul Latour (Bernard Lancret) is wanted by the police accused of distribution of forged dollars in his club, he asks his protégée and lead attraction of Mississippi Jean Clery (Jean Bretonniére) to protect his beloved daughter Brigitte (Brigitte Bardot). Jean is engaged of the psychoanalyst Lily (Françoise Fabian) and brings the wild and rebel Brigitte from her conservative boarding school to his fancy apartment while Paul travels to Lausanne to meet a friend to clear his name. While waiting for the return of Paul, Brigitte turns Paul's life upside down and they fall in love for each other. But the Parisian police and the counterfeit ring are chasing Brigitte, but Jean, his butler Jerome (Raymond Bussiéres) and his friends protect the girl.
"Cette Sacrée Gamine" is a delightful and naive entertaining. The predictable story is silly, uses many gags, but is supported by the adorable twenty-two year old Brigitte Bardot. This movie works first because of the beauty and charm of BB and Raymond Bussiéres is responsible for the funniest moments. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Garota Levada" ("Naughty Girl")
