(aka 'And God Created Woman" or "And Woman... Was Created" or "E Dio creò la donna" or "Piace a troppi ')

directed by Roger Vadim
France / Italy 1956


The astounding success of Roger Vadim’s And God Created Woman revolutionized the foreign film market and turned Brigitte Bardot into an international star. Bardot stars as Juliette, an 18-year-old orphan whose unbridled appetite for pleasure shakes up all of St. Tropez; her sweet but naïve husband Michel (Jean-Louis Trintignant) endures beatings, insults, and mambo in his attempts to tame her wild ways.

This was before Criterion went soft-palette with many of their color DVDs. It looks quite vibrant, bordering on (but not crossing) saturation levels. It has sharpness, film grain , decent contrast with a shade of blue in the image. Looks fabulous. Strange, but I had always thought this film was in black and white until I saw the Criterion DVD. A couple of insignificant extras keeps it in the lower price point. Very cool French film to watch Bardot wiggle on a rainy Sunday afternoon.out of
