| Fun with Nuns
For a second there I though I was watching March of the Penguins, but it was just a collection of nuns in habits enjoying a frolic in the sea.

One of those nuns was nun other than Brigette Bardot, looking absolutely gorgeous at 36. Why she abandoned her convent life and went on a stealing rampage is unexplained, but it wasn't long before a dog became involved.

She looked over her situation: money - nun. food - nun. place to sleep - nun, job -nun. It looked hopeless, but a kind-hearted working girl took pity. She met Mona Lisa (Annie Girardot) and was taken care of.

Time came for Bardot to earn her own way. The training and first night were hilarious. She looked like Orphan Annie in her costume.

Well, that didn't work out, so she got a job driving an ambulance, which worked fine at night as Mona Lisa could give "examinations" in the back.

But, things do not always go as planned. After several failures, they end up back on the beach with the nuns.

Nudity: nun, but it was funny.
