Storyline

When a 25-year old Parisian student, Gérard Morere, hears a lecture about a treasure Troilus lost at sea after the Peloponnesian War, he thinks he knows where it is, thanks to a discovery he made five years before when diving near the island of Levezzi. He gets friends and an innkeeper to invest in his dream, enough to get him to Tangiers where he convinces a cigarette smuggler, Erick, to take him to the island. There he finds Manina, the light-keeper's daughter, 18 and beautiful and pure. Erick thinks Gérard may have conned him, but Gérard's belief in the treasure compels patience. Dives by day and romance at night. Can Gérard's romantic ideas survive in the harsh rocks of Levezzi? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mostly in bikinis!
8 July 2003 | by Wolfi-10See all my reviews

Brigitte Bardot - young - fresh - sweet - and mostly in bikinis!

Oh yes, there was a story line too - she the daughter of a lighthouse keeper, and two guys who showed up for the summer. It was hardly the story that made BB famous, but the intense sensuality she radiated in this black-and-white movie, combined with a dear disposition - a winning combination that she did not quite reach again in all her later flicks.

A great gal!
