UNE PARISIENNE (Michel Boisrond, 1957) **
29 January 2010 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Even more frivolous, thus less rewarding, than COME DANCE WITH ME (1959; see my review elsewhere), this is really nothing more than a Hollywood-type sex comedy (with the heroine – once more, Brigitte Bardot – forsaking true love temporarily for a fling with a suave but aging prince played by Charles Boyer, no less!) spiced up with the new-fangled French naughtiness. Actually, the movie's two halves barely jell together as we first see the central couple (the man, by the way, is COME DANCE WITH ME's Henri Vidal and, throughout this lengthy initial sequence, we also get to see Noel Roquevert from that same film) being forced into marriage after she is surprised in the hero's bed during a week-end hunting party by her father, the current Prime Minister. Eventually, the two have a row and she vows to throw herself at the first man she meets: of course, since all of this occurs at the visiting Boyer's welcome festivities, it is he who becomes her 'target'; needless to say, he is happy to oblige…while spouse Nadia Gray who, naturally, is aware of his foibles covers up for him during engagements of state (especially when he flies off with Bardot to London)! This interlude, in fact, occupies the film's latter stages and even includes Boyer being mistaken for a gangster (perhaps a nod to his celebrated turn as Pepe' Le Moko in ALGIERS [1938]) in a pub – from which he and Bardot have to fight their way out! As I said at the start, UNE PARISIENNE is basically fluff which, though good-looking per se, does not have enough substance for it to be elevated beyond that.

Hollywood REMEMBERS: BRIGITTE BARDOT (TV) (N/A, 1990) **

Included on the R2 DVD of UNE PARISIENNE (1957) released by C'Est La Vie was this 25-minute pseudo-documentary about the French sex kitten. Exclusively featuring narration over scenes from a handful of her (thankfully)rarer films, these include a few that I happen to have in my collection, namely: Anatole Litvak's ACT OF LOVE (1953; a Hollywood-French co-production starring Kirk Douglas), Marc Allegret's MADEMOISELLE STRIPTEASE (1956), THE NIGHT HEAVEN FELL (1957; directed by her "Svengali" husband Roger Vadim and co-starring Stephen Boyd and Alida Valli), Serge Bourguignon's TWO WEEKS IN September (1967; with Laurent Terzieff and James Robertson Justice), Edward Dmytryk's SHALAKO (1968; an exotic Western that boasted an impressive cast: Sean Connery, Stephen Boyd, Jack Hawkins, Peter Van Eyck, Alexander Knox, Woody Strode and Honor Blackman) and her penultimate film, Vadim's DON JUAN OR IF DON JUAN WERE A WOMAN (1973; with Robert Hossein, Maurice Ronet, Robert Walker Jr. and Jane Birkin). Needless to say, Bardot's most famous films are also included - ...AND GOD CREATED WOMAN (1956), CONTEMPT (1963), VIVA MARIA! (1965) and SPIRITS OF THE DEAD (1968) - but the ones I most welcomed, personally, were those of films that are now virtually untraceable: BABETTE GOES TO WAR (1959) and PLEASE, NOT NOW! (1961)...which promises to be especially naughty and, in hindsight, might just fall into my lap one of these days! Title notwithstanding, Bardot had very little to do with Hollywood and this inadequate featurette only serves to highlight the fact that, most of the time, her star vehicles had little except her beauty and charm to commend them.
