Like sitting back and watching someone having an affair...
I've seen most of Brigitte Bardot's films and this one is typical in some ways but also pretty dull in others. Like so many of her films, you see lots of skin but no actual nudity--it's a lot of tease, that's for sure. And, like so many of her films, it's about a woman (Bardot) and her sexual awakening. But, unlike many of her other films, this one is pretty dull and seems less like a movie and more like watching a couple on a spy-cam meeting, talking (A LOT) and having sex (with all the naughty bits somehow hidden). It seems to pretty much glorify adultery and sings its praises--and this is bound to offend some and give vicarious thrills to others. The problem, though, is no matter how sexy Bardot is, the film looks sophisticated but down deep it is just dull and listless...and also seems to have very little to say other than 'give adultery a try'! Not particularly enjoyable.
