Dull and Boring
28 December 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The newly married Rebecca (Marianne Faithful) leaves her husband, the school teacher Raymond (Roger Mutton) and drives her motorcycle to meet her lover Daniel (Alain Delon) in Heldelberg. While crossing Europe, she recalls some moments of Raymond's life and how she met Daniel at her father's bookstore and then in an inn.

"The Girl on a Motorcycle" is a dull and boring movie with a story that is a rip-off of the cult "Easy Rider". Most of the time the camera shows the beautiful face of Marianne Faithful smiling and the story is limited to the storyline. The motorcycle in both movies is the symbol of freedom and the tragic conclusion is alike. The poor image and sound on the DVD seems to be from a VHS. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Garota da Motocicleta" ("The Girl of the Motorcycle")
