The opening scene has Bardot shown nude in profile as she lies on her front. Later, she rises naked from the marital bed, where her husband is but her figure is masked by some fabric in the foreground. After their boat catches fire and she is washed ashore, her dress is clinging suggestively to her fairly open cleavage. She dances in a night club very provocatively toward the film’s end to a small male audience.
General thrust of the film is one of strong sexual provocation and suggestion rather than anything actually explicit.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


“God created women” directly named Brigitte Bardot’s famous work with such a compliment, which is more accurate than “Roger wadim created Brigitte Bardot”. In 1956, Bardot, then 23, had been married for five years. Vadim, who was both husband and director, finally waited for the opportunity to customize the film God created women for his wife. At the beginning, Bardot appeared naked. Coupled with the low breast and close fitting clothes in the play, the temptation of spring, sexy and fierce erotic dance, and the feelings between the two brothers, Bardot disturbed the dreams of all French men overnight, became their dream Sexy Idol, and created a myth that lasted for half a century. Today, in the French memory, Bardot is still only “the woman created by God”, and it is the only one.

Just as for centuries, people have turned a blind eye to the ambiguous meaning implied by “God created women”, Bardot’s interpretation of the inner nature of an alternative woman in this film has been stripped away by the patriarchal vision, leaving only her attractive nudity. God created Adam and Eve is just a rib of Adam. Men only recognize that women are attached to their attributes from body to spirit and the temptation of sweet sin, and do not think that women also have self-sufficient spirituality. It is their curiosity and impulse that let men go out of the garden of Eden and gain their proud understanding and the wisdom eye of conquering the world. The reason why women are worshipped by people on the altar in a patriarchal society is that men know that women will never pose a threat to them. They are just material objects that men lust, possess, conquer or even worship. Praising women is still praising themselves.

The inspiration for this film is said to come from the love story of a woman and three brothers. Although one of the three brothers in the film is not dead as in the real story, this does not prevent it from being a tragedy, which is related to women and has nothing to do with love. People’s Misreading of the film and talking about Bardot’s nudity only emphasize the social significance of this tragedy.

Juliet played by Bardot has a strange habit of always barefoot. She likes to come and go barefoot wherever she is from the beginning to the end of the film. Just got married and came out of the church. Before the wedding dress was removed, she took off her leather shoes and walked barefoot on the stone street of the town. Then the groom struggled before entering the bridal chamber for the sake of her relationship with the population. After marriage, although she tried to restrain herself and gradually grew love for her husband, it was still difficult to cut off all kinds of connections with her past life. She wandered barefoot in the streets and bars and behaved like a child. Finally, she threw herself into the arms of Anthony, who had attracted attention for a long time, resulting in brothers turning against each other and blood splashing the bar. In everyone’s opinion, it will be like Anthony said that such a woman is a natural bitch. She will only have fun. Only a fool will marry her.

Is beauty doomed to sin? A woman with an unruly soul is guilty? No one heard Juliet’s fear whisper at the seaside late at night, and no one saw Juliet’s confused eyes dancing wildly.

Juliet knew more about herself. When the kind and fragile boy proposed to her, she didn’t immediately answer because the people in the town were hostile to her, but said: No, you don’t know me. I’m worried about myself. I always feel that I will die tomorrow, so there is always something in my heart that drives me to do stupid things and find joy. When she first tasted the affectionate care of her lover after marriage, she also felt happy like other women, but there was more fear in her heart. She knew she couldn’t stop her steps for the growing love and unbearable fear. The pair of natural feet used to being naked would not be suitable for any pair of shoes. When she heard that Anthony was going back to the town, she almost collapsed. The strong sense of tragedy and destiny of this crazy but fragile woman was exposed in front of us by that cry. This is a woman who does not have enough strength to restrain her heart and control her destiny, but because of this, she appears so honest and innocent. Looking at her is like watching another self sink into the mire step by step, but there is nothing to do, and others will never lend a helping hand, just look on indifferently, and even curse justice.

Tragedy is already doomed, such a woman, love and do not love are hurt, hurt themselves, but also hurt the people who love her. The sea breeze was cold and howling. She and her loved ones dragged the injured body on the way home, just like a flying fish that had just jumped on the crest of the waves. They were simply loaded back into the fish tank, tossed their body in vain, and collided between the transparent and cold walls. Then, was it gradually silent, or did the fish die and break the net? It turns out that love can be so deadly.

While watching the movie, I thought of another woman for no reason. The name of a Book: “not me, but the wind”. Juliet is like a pure woman, free from the shackles of materialism. She is as happy as the wind, erratic, unpredictable, free from manipulation, pursues independent spiritual enjoyment, and has a secular and pure soul. In France at that time, she was a woman beyond the times, secular and intolerable. She belonged to no one but herself. Women in this society, like those in Hollywood movies, are heavily wrapped by men’s eyes, either superficial praise, false worship, dressed up as pretentious purity, or they are indulged, molested, conquered and abandoned. Juliet’s heart is too powerful and mysterious for the men raised in the swaddle of male power. Most of them with weak psychology cannot have it. Once beyond their imagination and control, they not only don’t try to understand, protect and appreciate, but also narrow and brutally destroy, just like Camille crodale.

If anyone can understand her, he is half a flower guard, but the shipyard owner who has been trying to get her looks like an old playboy. This is really interesting. Maybe for a woman’s heart, men can understand only through experience and learn tolerance.

In the real world, at least one person touched the soul of this barefoot woman – Fran ç OIS truffer. When people cheered for the birth of the new French sexy goddess, the young truffer said in a comment that “God created women” is a symbol of the times and opens up new prospects for rigid French films. A few years later, this gentleman made another more excellent female film “Jul and Jim”, and later a series of works such as “the story of Adele Hugo” and “the flower of the partition wall”. No one is more delicate, heartfelt admiration and careful care for the independent and wild soul and mysterious fatalistic temperament under a woman’s elegant appearance. Interestingly, truffer has cooperated with almost all the excellent actresses in France and burst into beautiful and short-lived sparks, but there is no Brigitte Bardot. It is a small pity for us who watch movies.
