Storyline

When ultra-respectable General Dumont discovers that his nubile daughter Agnes is "A.D.", author of a scandalous under-the-counter novel, he wants her shipped to a convent; but she escapes to Paris, planning to live with her brother, ostensibly a rich artist but really a poor guide in the Balzac Museum. This misunderstanding gets both in serious trouble, and puts Agnes in immediate need of money...just the amount offered as grand prize in an amateur striptease contest, which her new boyfriend, reporter Daniel, is covering for his magazine...

Average Comedy with Lovely BB!
1 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Made right before AND GOD CREATED WOMAN, this little comedy is no great shakes, except for the lively and vivacious Ms. Bardot who is charming as always. The guy who plays her brother is strangely bizarre and amusing. A pretty tame film (considering the title), the plot isn't worth discussing, but Brigitte is coy and beautiful.

A 5 out of 10. Best performance = Ms. Bardot. Her next film (GOD) would completely change her image from fun and innocent to passionate and a lasting sexual creature of the 50's. Roger Vadim, who wrote this one finally got to direct her and make a lasting impression. This film is enjoyable, but nothing to brag about.
