ET DIEU CREA LA FEMME
"And God created Woman" inspired Photoshoot
My favourite film of the French actress Brigitte Bardot is And God Created Woman. Well, alongside with the Truth actually. The film of Roger Vadim starring young Brigitte Bardot is the film that launched Bardot into the spotlight and created her image, even though that wasn't her first film, and she had already been on the covers of fashion magazines as a model. The first scene she is revealed to the audience is mythical... sunbathing naked behind a bedsheet drying in the sun in the yard of her foster parents, we discover first her legs and bare feet, then her naked silhouette. Then she jumps from behind the sheet with curiosity.
-"I brought the apple" says Carradine -"Which apple?" asks Juliette, innocent -"Of the temptation" replies Carradine. The whole theme of the film is laying down here, like Juliette-Eve lying down in the garden of Eden, naked as the snake.
It was a pleasure to work again with Helene de Joie on this sunny Saturday morning. If you haven't seen the film yet, search for it, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!
