A light, very light comedy
1 March 2001 | by (Wellington, NZ) – See all my reviews

A young and sexy man for many scorned and often foxy women... Bardot is cunning and experienced,... she is on her last movie. The role was made for her it seems at the peak time of feminism in France.

The rest of the intrigue is quite flat but one always enjoys a light French comedy with no political correctness (no self censorship) and a real spirit of freedom.... so rare in the mainstream cinema of today.
