Watched this with my Grandmother and had a great time laughing at it. Marie-France Pisier is the worst actress ever (we guessed she came from Emmanuelle-style soft core films) and everyone is so dumb it's hard to take any of it seriously.

I was a fresh year student at Uni of Canterbury, Christchurch when this movie was shown in the theatre. Movie ticket were expensive.. so had to be selective as to which movie to go to. Glad I caught up with it now after 30 odd years. :-)

** (out of four)

I?m sure there is a group of people out there, (Probably mostly women) who adore this movie. The idea that a simple girl can move to the city, get used and then rise to huge power, is appealing. The film for me didn?t come across as quite so engrossing. It is far too much like a soap opera. The romance and betrayal is hard to stomach. It was one of the ten biggest hits of 1977, so obviously it has its fans.

Adapted from the book by Sidney Sheldon, Marie-France Pisier plays a woman who is sold to a business owner by her family in pre War France. She runs away from him and then falls for a handsome U.S. soldier (John Beck). But he leaves her and he eventually falls for an American woman (Susan Sarandon) and gets married. The young woman in France is devastated and begins clawing her way to the top as a famous actress, all the while plotting her revenge on the soldier.

The plot some doesn?t hold up. At first we feel bad for her because she was used, but eventually I started taking his side because she becomes such a wench. In the end (three hours later) the film takes such unbelievably turns that I didn?t care what happened to any of them.

Shoddy Synopsis:
A woman is basically sold by her father to be raped by a fat, hairy, sweaty, older man. This woman falls in love with a lying/cheating bastard who thinks he has game. Bumping and grinding ensues. Booobs! Woman waits for the lying/cheating bastard to marry her when he returns from war, he decides to knock up a few chicks in different countries instead, and abandon each of them. Woman realizes that she is preggers with lying/cheating bastard's baby. Woman aborts baby with a hanger in her bathtub. Disgusting. Woman plots revenge for years. Has sex with several men and is just effing naked all of the time. Lying/cheating bastard coaxes another innocent woman to marry his dumb ass. More nudity. More sex. More boobs. First jilted woman finds out and wants innocent new wife dead. Lying/cheating bastard cowardly leaves wife to die in a cave. He then sends a search party to find her. WTF? She lives! She dies?...Poor jilted woman driven to insanity by lying/cheating bastard is sentenced to death by a firing squad. WTF happens to lying/cheating bastard?...Dead wife is now a zombie nun? Drama!
