Handsome and rich Spanish gentleman abandons his wife and riches for his love of a young girl of poor stock who taunts and degrades him. Only after she has humbled him mercilessly does she offer him her love in the end.
"Et Dieu créa la femme" was not that much a permanent chef d'oeuvre of the French cinema,by a long shot.If it were not for BB,that Vadim farce would be forgotten today.
As far as I'm concerned ,I have a tendency to favor "la mariée est trop belle",an unpretentious light little comedy .You have got to bear in mind that the script writers (husband and wife Agostini and Joyeux) worked with Claude Autant-Lara ,notably for his masterpiece "Douce" and they should have learned something in all those years ,all the same.Their screenplay is charming,not unlike Stanley Donen's "Funny face" (that movie is much superior though) released the same year.
BB is natural,her voice is just a joy to hear -do not see a version dubbed in English,do prefer subtitles-,and she already displays her love for animals (she cuddles her cat more than men).She 's ideally cast as a clueless -but not dumb,BB was never a bimbo- girl, thrust into the world of fashion,an artificial calculating world.A splendid cast gathers French lover Louis Jourdan -more popular in the US during the fifties than in his native France-,Micheline Presles and singer Marcel Amont .
ALL BB had to do was act naturally.
