2.0 out of 5 stars Bad picture &sound, no colour, BARDOT still charms . November 14, 2004
If you see a well shot and edited movie made 60 years ago chances are it will still look better than this one. The colour has somehow got lost on the DVD transfer, the sound is scratchy in places and murdered by bad dubbing (particularly with the little boy) and an intrusive musical score drowns out the dialogue. Having said that, although the plot is very thin, Bardot is a true professional and squeezes evrything she can out of her character. Its silly and not terribly funny either and probably not worth playing again for a very long time , but even with so much against it, the Star DOES shine through. She is a megastar and her screen presence can not be denied. If you're a fan buy it anyway. If your new to Brigitte's charms, get "Une Parisienne" , "Come Dance with me" and "And God created woman" before you even think of this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lousy transfer of a Bardot Movie October 7, 2004
Well, I'm not going to go into the content of this movie - if you are reading this review you must be familiar with Bardot movies of this period and must know the quality of her work at this time. On the plus side, she looks absolutely gorgeous.....and that's about it. This DVD has to be the worst transfer of a movie to a DVD I have ever seen. It's in Black and White - full frame - dubbed terribly, and is rather grainy and unclear as well. Basically, I'm wishing that I had purchased the VHS edition which according to the other review of the item is at least in some kind of colour, albeit with a green tint to it. Avoid unless you are a completeist.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip Off.... watch ou! March 17, 2011
By Tommy V
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Stay as far away from this DVD release as you can. This is a 4x3 Black & White lousy copy of a beautiful 16x9 film from 1970. It has been released in glorious color in Europe, so why do we get this piece of junk?

I think the answer is incompetent distributors that don't give a darn, and will do anything for a profit, even release this trashy DVD that was obviously recorded from analog television onto VHS tape. This product should be immediately pulled from distribution. I have sent a letter stating such to KOCH entertainment. No answer... I guess for these people there is no shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the color??? Where're the subtitles?? June 19, 2009
I've got a copy of the French DVD release of this film. The color is gorgeous--bright and rich--and the aspect ratio is shown in its correct wide-screen format. It looks and sounds great. But there are no English subtitles. I don't know French but having seen the absolutely horrible b/w dubbed version others describe here (and they describe it correctly) I knew the plot and was somewhat familiar with the dialogue. I'm surprised someone hasn't taken the French release and provide it with subtitles.

I give the b/w dubbed release a three-star rating because the plot is fun and the interaction between the characters shows Brigitte at her best onscreen.
