Editorial Reviews

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. Criterion presents this milestone of cinematic naughtiness in a stunning new 16x9 Eastmancolor transfer, supervised by the late director.

Customer Reviews

A young woman who is desired by many men is equally hated by many mothers.
A Customer
I found them to be quite inaccurate during a few scenes and, with no rapid-fire dialog in this film to justify it, not as expansive as they should have been.

Urge you to withdraw from sale and CHECK BEFORE CALLING ANY DVD A COLLECTORS EDITION!

Although the movie's sensuality wouldn't raise an eyebrow nowadays, it's easy to see how audiences from the 50's would have been affected by Brigitte Bardot's sensuous form and how this movie revolutionized the foreign film market. A real delight to watch, wild-child Brigitte teases with her bouncy walk and her tight sweaters. And, yes, she can even act! In the role of Juliette, an incredibly beautiful orphaned young woman living in a seaside village, Brigitte keeps the delicate balance between the constant flirt (who's misunderstood as being the loosest girl in town) and the woman who yearns to have a "normal" married life despite her attraction to her brother-in-law. Contrary to popular belief and despite Juliette's regrettable infidelity, there's really no sex in this movie, unless you consider a one-time tush shot to be overly sexual. The DVD booklet mentions how some audiences originally misperceived this film's sexuality to be so bold that rampant gossip soon generated complaints about scenes that weren't even in the movie! The cinematography is breathtaking, with the Riviera beckoning you to move there...or at least visit for an extended period of time. The only aspect of the movie that is dated and very much out-of-sync with modern times is the attitude that men are superior to women and that, with proper discipline and control, women can be kept in line and "forced" to love their husbands.
The Criterion edition is, as always, fantastic. With director Vadim's approval prior to his passing away, the movie was restored to its original uncut version in a beautiful widescreen format. The digital tranfer is impressive and one of the extras on the disc illustrates the clean-up process and provides before-and-after comparisons.

After having seen so many movies during the last 25 years, I'm beginning to understand two or three things about cinema. For example, it's impossible to profess a passion for cinema if the movies you see are only masterpieces. Believe me or not, but I'm not able to watch three Fellini or Bergman's movies in a row without feeling a bit bored. I MUST cool down and refresh my neurones by watching a bad sci-fi movie or a John Wayne movie of the 50's ( he starred in a lot of very cheap films...).
Director Roger Vadim's AND GOD CREATED WOMAN is, in my opinion, one of these movies you cannot neglect if you truly love cinema. Not because Roger Vadim is an unknown genius but because of the actress who plays the main character : Brigitte Bardot. You simply have to possess one of her movies in your library and since only three or four movies starring BB have passed with success the test of time, AND GOD CREATED WOMAN could be your first choice.
But remember that Roger Vadim was not Billy Wilder and that the french Marilyn Monroe had to count solely on her sex-appeal to attract the audience. And it still works. Brigitte Bardot shot a lot of terrible movies, she was not, in my opinion, a good actress but she ignited the screen. She was a real Star. And I'm not ashamed to have this DVD in my library.
The copy presented by Criterion is simply perfect, a trailer and a restoration demonstration as bonus features, the choice between the standard and the widescreen version, and english subtitles.
A BB DVD.

Format: DVD
From what I understand, Amazon insists that reviews include information about the PRODUCT. But some of these reviews gush on about the movie, slapping a 5-star rating on their review while going nowhere near what we really need to know about the quality of the disc itself. Details about the DVD are even more important now that Amazon has decided to stick all reviews for very different editions by both reputable and disreputable manufacturers, on the same page. So right now, reviews for the superior Criterion edition are mixed in with the Triad edition, which is an overpriced copy of something they've downloaded from public domain. How confusing. The reviews for the Triad edition are awash with giddy information -- click on the see-all-my-reviews links next to each review to see why -- while telling you nothing you really need to know about the DVD itself. Yes, we know Brigette Bardot is hot. Yes, we know this movie showcases the assets for which she is renowned. But what we're hunting for at this juncture is information about the quality of the DVD. How good of a transfer is it? What are the extra features? What's the source for the transfer? What does "enhanced" mean?

The glaring fact is, the Triad edition of this DVD is in the incorrect format for this movie. The original format is WIDESCREEN. You can check that out at IMDb. The Triad edition is the NTSC version for American TV broadcast, which means its source image, from wherever they got it, is a VIDEO TAPE. Aside from those shortcomings, it's dubbed, and this manufacturer provides no option to access multiple audio tracks for the original French. Whatever the program is they're using to "enhance" it, the process has the built-in limitations dictated by the source tape.
