Product Description

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.

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.

This is a visually pleasing movie. The color and cinematography are very good. There are lush green landscapes and brilliant blue seascapes. The acting by the cast is just fine. Even the lesser characters have some good lines. The script is comprehensible, mostly believable and even amusing at times.
The movie is sensual but not at all erotic by today's standards. In fact the famous movie still, a topview of a nude Bardot in bed covered by very little, which appeared in magazines at the time of the movie's U.S. release and which suggested a more erotic film is not in this 'uncut' version.
Bardot is simply a marvel and she gives a fine performance here. However, I didn't find this movie as good or as enjoyable as some of Bardot's better comedies, e.g., Une Parisienne and Viva Maria.
Overall a decent but not great movie.

This review is for the Criterion Collection DVD edition of the film.
This release was supervised by director Roger Vadim who died while the DVD was being produced.
This film highly controversal at the time of the release in the US (it was considered racy) but is tame by today's standards.
It got a PG rating for it's 1978 rerelease in the US
The film was also remade in 1988 by the same director and title and the remake got an R rating.
The original French title is "Et Dieu créa la femme"
The film is about a young woman whose hedonistic tendencies cause problems in the town she is living in. Her husband attempts to calm her but that also causes problems.
The Criterion DVD has a theatrical trailer in English and there is also a restoration demonstration.

A young woman who is desired by many men is equally hated by many mothers. This woman is Juliete Hardy (Brigitte Bardot) and she is promised by one man to be brought away from St. Tropez. Another man declares his passion for her while the brother openly announces that he wants to marry her. She is put between a rock and a hard place, since she is forced to move into an orphanage unless she marries or is adopted. She marries the brother, but she still has strong feelings for the other brother who wanted to show his passion for her. ...And God Created Woman is an interesting film that deals with blame, love, infatuation, jealousy, and much more that is intriguing for a contemporary audience.
