Movie Info

Bernadette Lafont is as alluring as all get out in Such a Gorgeous Kid Like Me (original title: Une Belle Fille Comme Moi). She plays a crafty murderess who uses her not inconsiderable charms to disarm her victims and trap unwitting males into helping her. Lafont relates her steamy past to an ingenious criminology student, and in the end, he is as "hooked" as any of the other men in the women's life. Based on the novel by Henry Farrell (and more than a little inspired by such Hollywood "black widow" films as The File on Thelma Jordon), Such a Gorgeous Kid Like Me is one of the most consistently enjoyable of Francois Truffault's films of the 1970s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Une belle fille comme moi (A Gorgeous Bird Like Me)(Such a Gorgeous Kid Like Me)

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Lafont's antic embodiment of feminine ferocity cuts cleverly against Truffaut's grim vision of a world that both represses and craves it, and the comedy masks the endless round of victimhood.
