Storyline

Antoine promises to take the orphaned Juliette away from St. Tropez after a party where she has wandered onto the yacht of the urbane Eric. But in the morning the bus and Antoine zip by Juliette's stop and she runs into the field to capture the rabbit she set free moments before. About to be sent back to the orphanage by her foster mother, she identifies with the rabbit. Antoine's younger brother Michel comes to Juliette's rescue with a marriage proposal and she accepts. Eric wants the brothers' shipyard as a casino site and brings Antoine back to St. Tropez. Life gets complicated. Written by Dale O'Connor <daleoc@interaccess.com>

Worst choreographed fight scenes in film history!
21 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a curiousity that seems to have achieved cult status by showcasing the early Brigitte Bardot--okay, so she's easy to look at, but as a character she invites no audience identification whatsoever. Nor do the always reliable actors Christian Marquand ("Flight of the Phoenix," and director of one of THE worst movies of all time, "Candy") and Curt Jurgens, as two of the men "bewitched" by this unlikable bitch. The only sympathetic role in the whole film belongs to Jean-Louis Trintagnant, as the younger brother of the Marquand character.

And it is Trintagnant who is the unfortunate victim of the worst-choreographed fight scenes I have ever, EVER seen. Especially pathetic is the first fight with a dockyard tough: the blows and kicks are very obviously not connecting, and the sound effects are not only insufficient, they're out of synch with the onscreen action. The very worst John Wayne western from his pre-stardom period in the 3O's boasts better action sequences. Errol Flynn's legendarily awful "Cuban Rebel Girls," which resembles a home movie more than a film, has better fight scenes. In fact, I personally am but a community-theatre actor, and even I can fake giving and receiving punches better than Vadim's performers!

Two things puzzle me: Why did the people who meticulously "restored" the film for DVD not upgrade the sound effects to at least partially fix these absurd scenes? And how did Vadim's reputation ever survive this demonstration of ineptitude? Or is there some "artistic significance" associated with hilariously awful filmmaking that I am missing here?
