Critics reviews

The fabled opening has the CinemaScope frame filled by the bare form of one Brigitte Bardot, behind on a clothesline is a white bedsheet like the blank movie screen—it might be a Boucher nude, except that it’s Roger Vadim on the Côte d’Azur with Eastmancolor… The best analytical studies are by Godard (Le Mépris) and Wesselmann (Great American Nude No. 94 1/2), unless it’s Vadim’s own Eighties retelling with De Mornay in Santa Fe.
