Storyline

Antoine promises to take the orphaned Juliette away from St. Tropez after a party where she has wandered onto the yacht of the urbane Eric. But in the morning the bus and Antoine zip by Juliette's stop and she runs into the field to capture the rabbit she set free moments before. About to be sent back to the orphanage by her foster mother, she identifies with the rabbit. Antoine's younger brother Michel comes to Juliette's rescue with a marriage proposal and she accepts. Eric wants the brothers' shipyard as a casino site and brings Antoine back to St. Tropez. Life gets complicated. Written by Dale O'Connor <daleoc@interaccess.com>

just for BB
6 January 2000 | by lolo-12See all my reviews

I see there are but a few ratings for this incredibly successful movie..But it is only because it's french (foreign) and old.

Young Brigitte Bardot (now a living legend) plays a young, sexually attractive orphan who basically, becomes the fantasy of every man in town. She then gets married with a nice and clean young man, but she can't keep herself from cheating on him.

This movie was a hit and it became a cult movie. I wonder why..The storyline is flat and ordinary, the acting as well...Oh! yes, but there was BB and her beautifully shaped body, her full lips, and her sensuality like there's never seen before..

A star was born...
