Clever, tempting and deliciously funny
10 October 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Irresistibly tempting the socialite model urban Felicity (Bridget Bardot) duels her seductive charms against the baffling and equally determined country cellist Gaspard (Jean-Pierre Cassel) who refuses to return the compliment. Mostly played out at Gaspards country home over one evening, Nina Companéez and Michel Deville's plot allow both actors to display their versatility. Particularly appealing is one scene when Felicity has Gaspard act as a woman and she takes on the role of a man wanting to get his way with with 'her'. We see Bardot, always flirtatious, but strongly characterised and not just portrayed as a flimsy 'sex kitten' such as in "Les Novices'. When together, Cassal and Bardots performances are so palpably magnetic, that some scenes of them alone seem inferior. Totally absorbing.
