And God Created Woman ★★½ And Woman…Was Created; Et Dieu Crea la Femme 1957 (PG)

Launching pad for Bardot's career as a sex siren, as she flits across the screen in a succession of scanty outfits and hangs out at the St. Tropez beach in what is euphemistically known as a swimsuit while turning up the heat for the males always in attendance. The plot concerns an 18-year-old nymphomaniac who is given a home by a local family with three handsome young sons. A cutting-edge sex film in its time that was boffo at the boxoffice. In French with English subtitles. 93m/C VHS, DVD . FR Brigitte Bardot, Curt Jurgens, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Christian Marquand; D: Roger Vadim; W: Roger Vadim, Raoul Levy; C: Armand Thirard; M: Paul Misraki.
