Charming, Semi-Ditzy Bardot!
2 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ms. Bardot, as always, is charming and delightful and has a cool little studio apartment in this lovely pastiche. It's perfectly cast with very few semi-nude scene and Brigitte is delightfully in love with a yuppie fool who can't see the light. BB's suitor is funny and attentive and worthy of her attention.

A 6 out of 10. Best performance = Ms. Bardot. She made only a few great films, but is always worth a look because of her presence. Great photography and locales in France. I'm surprised BB doesn't have more of a following, but I realize she hasn't made a film since '73. I've seen about half of her films and enjoyed most of them. Check them out.
