And God Created Woman (Widescreen) (Version française)
Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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 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.

In all her 48 movies, Brigitte Bardot never catches public imagination with more effect than she does here. Read morePublished on April 12 2004 by W R Visser
ah Brigitte you were once my idol. Seeing you again after 40 some years, just as fresh, just as fabulous ( in both senses) as you ever were is a real high. Read morePublished on Aug. 28 2003 by Amazon Customer
I expected an exploitation flick, what with Bridgette Bardot being the Marilyn Monroe of French Cinema and all, and this film being so controversial at the time. Read morePublished on July 14 2003
