Critic Reviews for The Night Heaven Fell

All Critics (4)

Bardot is unconvincing playing a virgin just out of a convent school.

November 6, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…

[Roger] Vadim sells the picture by getting his wife out of her dresses and into lingerie, nighties, and less as often as possible.

January 10, 2010 | Full Review…

Although shot in gorgeous Technicolor and widescreen CinemaScope, the film is dark and psychologically dense.

Audience Reviews for The Night Heaven Fell


This movie was pretty good, Bardot's acting skills aren't stretched any, but she's good at what she's good at. The story is interesting, but could be better portrayed.
