THAT CRAZY KID
DO YOU WANT TO DANCE WITH ME?
HEARTFUL OF JOY
This collection should not be seen as BB's greatest hits. A single collection of her 5 best films doesn't exist yet. If it did, it would include:
LA LUMIERE D'EN FACE (The Light Across, available from Amazon-France; region 2)
ET DIEU...CREA LA FEMME (And God Created Woman, available at Amazon)
EN CAS DE MALHEUR (In Case of Adversity; an excellent Russian dvd with English subtitles is available at Amazon)
LA VERITE (The Truth, available at Amazon-France; region 2; no English sub-titles)
LE MEPRIS (Contempt; the Criterion Collection edition is recommended; available at Amazon)
Even in lesser films, with lesser directors, Brigitte Bardot created an aura of femininity that could only be described as pure. The films in this collection from Studio Canal may be concerned with subject matter that's far from profound, and may even bore at times. The fact BB's mere presence makes them irresistable to watch is reason enough for the 5 star rating.
all films appear newly remastered - pristine prints. All panavision films presented widescreen. Includes a documentary on the Bardot phenomenon called, "Brigitte Bardot: Larger Than Life" that covers the range of her life and career including the films she made with the French New Wave. Includes interviews with Hugh Hefner and a few French film experts.
five films in the set include:
NAUGHTY GIRL (1956)co-written by Bardot's husband/svengali - Vadim just a year before her breakthrough hit "And God Created Woman". Fun romp with Bardot in her early gamin look. Color/ widescreen
COME DANCE WITH ME (1959) - wild mix of genres from gangster film to musical to sex comedy. Plus you get to see Bardot dance which is a treat in and of itself. color
LOVE ON A PILLOW (1962) - co-written and directed by Vadim. Taken from biographical elements of Bardot's life. A man tries to commit suicide and is helped in his recovery by Bardot. Co-starring Robert Hossein. Good early Vadim film. More dramatic role for Bardot like her roles in COntempt and The Truth. color/widescreen
TWO WEEKS IN SEPTEMBER (1967) - Swinging London in the late 60's. Great print with wonderful colors. Cool shots of London, underground clubs and a very sexy Bardot in her more familiar blonde bomshell look. Color/widescreen
THE VIXEN (1969) - Bardot helps a writer get through his writer's block as only she knows how to do. Toward the end of her career but Bardot still looks fantastic. And shows a more mature comedic talent. color
Several of these films were released in 2000 from Anchor Bay. But this set includes better prints and nice supplemental material. A good addition for the foreign cinephile's library.
