AND GOD CREATED WOMAN made quite a stir when it was released in America in the 1950s. For its time, it was very sexy and shocking. Unfortunately, the film does not age well--and today is rather tedious and forgettable. My how times have changed.
This film became famous for two reasons--and they're right above Bardot's bellybutton. She plays a bit of a bimbo and this movie is extremely sensual--for that it earns some points. But the script?! Yech!! The plot is rather silly and contrived at times, but completely gives way to silliness at the end. The end is so dumb and ridiculous that it strains my brain to think how they could have created such a stupid ending. My recommendation is to watch this more for curiosity sake than because it is a good film or because you are such a French film buff you MUST see it. FYI--the sequel (made with Rebecca DeMornay) is even stupider. While the plots have SOME similarities, they are quite different.
