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>

Quotes

Casino Royal Patron: Carradine, you are the incarnation of luck.
Eric Carradine: You think, your Highness? You have money, power, women. Tell me. What does one have to do to have a woman?
Casino Royal Patron: You're asking me... It depends on the woman. Usually it takes jewels, furs. In extreme cases, a little mansion.
Eric Carradine: Let's say you're passionately in love with a woman. One night she comes to see you. Instead of having her, you see someone else marries her. You call that luck?
Casino Royal Patron: No, I call it good judgement.

BB at her Sauciest in Vadime's Best Film!
1 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

This groundbreaking Vadim film made Ms. Bardot the hottest sex symbol on the planet back in 1956. Vadim was never much of a director, but he had great taste in women (Bardot, Deneuve, J. Fonda). Brigitte Bardot is a knockout as a spoiled and selfish 20 y/o who doesn't seem to know what she wants, but all the men want HER! No one walks down a street like Ms. Bardot. Beautiful location and good performances all around.

It's too bad the dubbed version has a terrible voice used for Brigitte, but her physical presence carries it anyway. She knows how to move and hold your attention. Just an incredibly vibrant creature of the 50's. She has undervalued as an actress and no one was sexier or more sure of herself (at least ON screen). Best performance = Bardot. A 7 out of 10.
