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>

Quotes

Le déléguée de l'évêché: Shameless, impolite, and also lazy. I was hoping to find excuses for you, but I have to agree with Mrs. Morin.
Juliete Hardy: Excuses for what?
Le déléguée de l'évêché: Your behavior.
Juliete Hardy: Is it your business?
Le déléguée de l'évêché: Absolutely. I've been put on your case by the Welfare Board. I'll tell them that you're a disgrace to the orphanage. I can't deny any of the rumors I've heard. My child, I think there's only one way to save yourself. Go see a doctor and have him give you a certificate.
Juliete Hardy: What kind of certificate?
Le déléguée de l'évêché: If you're a proper young lady, I'll ...

Bardot launched
29 August 2003 | by (Leusden, Holland) – See all my reviews

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.
