It's less Summer of Love than Season of Lust and any sense of liberation is limited to her sexual horizons ...

Audience Reviews for Girl on a Motorcycle (1968)

Although I love the motorcycle angle of this love affair story, the rest of it is predictable and Faithfull isn't the greatest actress, she's pretty, but boring. Delon is the same, he's hot, but you don't get to know his character well enough, and he's pretty boring. Then there's all this crazy psychedelia going on with dreams and flashbacks or something that isn't really clear. Overall, it's okay, but there was so much more that they could have done with this movie.

Something of a cult 60s classic, it's a bit of a case of style over substance but Marriane Faithful is irresistable in motorcycle leathers! It's also got quite an empowering feminist theme that pre-dated Thelma and Louise by a couple of decades.
