Pfff... In all her 48 movies Brigitte Bardot never catches public imagination more thouroughly and efficiently than she does in 'et Dieu créa la femme'. Her performance in this movie really makes the sparks fly off your screen. Make sure you see the new, cleaned up version, by the way. You'll better appreciate its fine use of colors.
By this statement we have captured the essence of 'Dieu'. There really is nothing more positive to say about this movie. But it is enough. More than enough. Surely no one could have played the role of Juliette better than Brigitte did. By wearing her long, blond hair loose, Brigitte suggest sexual availability. Paradise on earth is just around the corner, she tells us. And today Brigitte's message sounds as fresh and promising as in 1956. That's why 'et Dieu créa la femme' is immortal.
