"She is brave enough to do what she wants when she wants."
....and GOD CREATED WOMAN is a very frivolous drama, through which permeates a fresh erotic and tragic story of young people. An eighteen-year orphan girl is the object of desire of many men in a small fishing town. Her provocative behavior is scandalous for most citizens. However, the real problems arise when she marries a naive young man who is crazy about her...
It is a very interesting conflict between a frivolous dialogue and tragic story in this film. Scenery is full of "freshness" considering the sun, the sea, the heat and a naked girl, but atmosphere is gloomy and depressing. Mr. Vadim has made a film in which the protagonists are in a kind of conflict with themselves, among themselves and with nature. As a result of that appears a wild and irrational girl that breaks certain social taboos.
Brigitte Bardot as Juliette Hardy is somehow amoral girl. She is brave enough to do what she wants when she wants." I think everyone will enjoy her nakedness. Bardot moves herself in a fashion that fully accentuates her charms. However, those who have enjoyed her acting are probably rare. A young, beautiful and pretty actress has become a sex symbol.
Curd Jürgens as Éric Carradin is an old businessman and cunning fox, who is experienced enough to not put his life into the hands of one wild girl. Jean-Louis Trintignant as Michel Tardieu is Juliette's husband. He was deeply depressed and fascinated with his playful wife at the same time. Christian Marquand as Antoine Tardieus is an older brother and a real playboy in a small town. His guilt was so ironic.
This is a circus of the film, but I enjoyed the beautiful images of St. Tropez and the lovely Brigitte.
