Movie Info

This Roger Vadim production was released in the US as ...And God Created Woman. Vadim's then-wife Brigitte Bardot plays the central character, a curvaceous nymphet with a voracious sexual appetite. In fact, it isn't what Bardot does in bed but what she might do that drives the three principal male characters (Curd Jurgens, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Christian Marquand) into an erotic frenzy. Most available prints of ...And God Created Woman have been heavily edited to conform with the prevailing censorial standards of 1957. Vadim remade his own film in 1987. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

  • We can't recommend this little item as a sample of the best in Gallic films. It is clumsily put together and rather bizarrely played.

    Oct 30, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • ...a social document of the ways that a woman's allure can fuel, destroy, and build the dreams of men who fall under her spell.

  • By today's standards the film is tame, but back in 1956, Vadim's feature debut was sensational and scandalous, catapulting Brigitte Bardot (who was married to Vadim) to the status of international sex icon.

  • A great movie to eat ice cream to. Brigitte Bardot - WOW!

    Nov 14, 2005 | Rating: 4/5
  • Adding up to hardly anything more than a bunch of snapshots of Bardot posturing as a sex kitten in various stages of undress.

  • A fragilidade do roteiro e o tom de melodrama poderiam transformar este filme em uma experiência nada memorável - mas é aí que a presença incrivelmente sensual e luminosa de Bardot faz a diferença, salvando a produção.

Audience Reviews for ...And God Created Woman

    In "...And God Created Woman," Eric Carradine(Curd Jurgens) wants to build a waterfront casino in the south of France. And would, except for the fact that Antoine Tardieu(Christian Marquand) will not sell him the family shipbuilding business. What the two men have in common is Juliette(Brigitte Bardot), an 18-year old orphan who flirts with both of them. That and the nude sunbathing get her foster parents to send her back to the orphanage until she is 21. So, she pulls a runner before having second thoughts. That gives the guys enough time to consider her options which come down to either adoption or marriage... The once shocking "...And God Created Woman" might seem tame by today's standards but is still risque enough to merit interest, especially in the movie's climactic nightclub scene. On the other hand, its message about society not knowing what to do with sexual women still resonates, as does the insight that the more restictive a society, the worse men will act. Even as the story is inconsistent, wavering between comedy and melodrama, there is still Brigitte Bardot who makes a great entrance. While it takes 30 minutes for anybody to notice Jean-Louis Trintignant, don't worry as he is only getting started.

    This movie was really cool, it's sort of like a sexier more modern version of Taming of the Shrew.

    Bardot is something, and the final sequence was interesting, but this movie doesn't really say much for women.

    I'm amazed this movie gets so much discussion. It's mediocre. Bardot is lovely, sure, but the movie is barely adequate.
