Movie Info

Director Jack Cardiff also served as scripter and cinematographer of the Anglo-French co-production Girl on a Motorcycle (La Motocyclette) The girl in question is played by leather-clad Marianne Faithfull, who speeds through Alsace on her cycle, en route to a tryst in Heidelberg with her ex-lover (Alain Delon). In a series of flashbacks, she recalls the events leading up to the present critical moment, including her desultory marriage. Based on a novel by Andre de Pieyre, the R-rated Naked Under Leather was originally released in English-speaking countries in an X-rated version titled The Girl on a Motorcycle. Based on the stage play by Walter Melville. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Naked Under Leather (The Girl on a Motorcycle)

  • Sep 09, 2011
    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.
