Being a French-Italy co-production, the film has two original titles: "La Parigina" in Italy, and "Une Parisienne" in France, spoken in Italian and French, respectively. The film premiered end 1957, and was dubbed in English for the international markets as "La Parisienne" early 1958. The official VHS and DVD releases (PAL system), from René Château are also titled "La Parisienne" but have the original French dialogue and English subtitles. The pre-title sequence was omitted from the video release, but it exists from an earlier TV broadcast. See more »
Brigitte Bardot sparkles in this lighthearted romp with Charles Boyer and looks great as always. Although I prefer her dramas and melodramas her romantic comedies are a filling dessert. She seems comfortable, relaxed, and appears to be having a fine old time. Boyer is always charming and an undervalued actor for many years.
A 6 out of 10. Best performance = BB. The music is annoying, especially the opening, but the color is great. All Bardot fans should seek this out (just for fun). I think Bardot is under-rated because few of her films are GREAT ART, but she holds her own with anybody and was always a treat for the eyes as well.
