Italian holiday
5 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

A generic title ,which could fit countless other movies whose heroine is a Parisian;a screenplay the standards of which are simply what the French call:"Théatre De Boulevard ":run of the mill stories of wives,husbands ,lovers ,cuckolds ,with a dash of "Roman Holiday" in reverse for good measure.

Brigitte Bardot acted naturally ,with a drawling voice and a roguish look ,and this "Petit Je Ne Sais Quoi " which made her THE greatest French sex symbol of all time;she did know she was hot and very attractive but she did never take it too seriously;she already showed her love for animals in the scene when she pampered the dog;Charles Boyer was aging at the time and was too old for a prince charming.

As for her hubby in the film,Henri Vidal,this is one of the saddest stories in the history of the French cinema:addicted to heroin since he was 17,although he tried detox ,he had only two years left to live ;he was to meet again BB in "Voulez-Vous Danser Avec Moi"with the same director (Boisrond), his final role (1959).
