Très bonne? Très joyeuse?
11 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Not really.

"Colinot' is notable for BB's presence.It was to be her last movie and at the time ,in France ,nobody believed she was serious ,but she was true to herself and her decision to call it quits as the porno was thriving in her native land was never called into question.

BB briefly appears for "Colinot" is primarily a film made of sketches which takes place in the MIddle-Ages.Francis Huster ,the hero meets plenty of gorgeous ladies such as Natalie Delon and Muriel Catala .BB is a highborn lady who teaches him that "owning a woman's soul is a harder task than owning her body".

Nina Companeez's amorous bawdy inspiration was much better applied on "Benjamin" which she wrote and which Michel Deville directed in 1968.
