3.0 out of 5 stars Great story with a poor ending 10 Mar 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film was one of Bardot's last on the silver screen. Teaming up with former hubby Vadim, Bardot who was then in her late 30's played a man-eating female Don Juan as both she and Vadim attempted to recapture their previous successes together. The movie itself was a flop though I felt that the plot and the acting were well delivered. Needless to say Bardot was in her element as the seductress devouring men after men and then spitting them out like "BUBBLE GUM"( which interestingly was the name of one of the songs she released in the 60's!). At times one gets the impression the plot was going in circles as much of it revolved around Bardot recounting her lascivious affairs to her cousin(a priest!), in the process she ended up in bed with him too! Despite all this I thoroughly enjoyed this film....and thought it was well put together. However, the ending was really senseless....to me it was merely an easy way to end what would have otherwise been a great film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kitsch and stylish 31 Mar 2013
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Pre-dating Emmanuelle and Histoire O this lush Vadim time warp erotic ramble is a must if you love 70's style. Brigitte acts admirably although her "lesbian" tryst with Jane Birkin is stilted. Nevertheless it's high on visual flair (Bardot's houseboat is to die for) and the narrative involving the male victim is melodramatic enough to keep you involved in it's slightly episodic storyline. Not to be taken seriously of course, but a wonderfully evocative nugget of early 70's milieu.

3.0 out of 5 stars The 2 Je t'aime women together in BB's last film. Erotic! 21 Oct 2003
By Adam Bernstein - Published on Amazon.com
Brigitte Bardot stars here in her last film along with Jane Birkin, the other singer who recorded the Serge Gainesbourg hit, "Je t'aime". This film is worth seeing, as we see BB's and Vadim's evolution from "And God Created Woman" to this post-sixties over-the-top comedy-drama.
We get some great nude scenes with Brigitte and Jane, and BB's character Jeanne is someone fed up with men, so she resorts to seduce and destroy tactics. As in "And God Created Woman" she's pretty much playing herself, but with an exaggerated storyline of driving men to ruin, murder, and suicide. The campy ironic humor is there in such scenarios as seducing a priest as well as setting up a fake menage-a-trois to madden a bete homme. Also a scene with Robert Walker Jr. (Charlie X in Star Trek TOS) where the price she asks for making love is no less than his life, which he takes seriously. The ending is a multiple meaning one as BB saves a man who makes her "pay for her sins" (though he's unappreciative). I think the end hits home for Brigitte in real life saying in effect, "look you male-dominated world, you've made my life hell". And it's the last scene she ever did on film. Worth seeing for it's erotic quality (but what BB film isn't), the submarine home, the early '70s fashions, and the camp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bewildering, fascinating film 26 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a bewildering but fascinating film. Bardot plays the part of a wealthy woman who seeks to conquer and destroy men especially weak and despicable ones. Bardot gives a very strong and convincing performance. At age 38, her beauty remains in tact. She looks virtually the same as she did 11 years earlier in the film A Very Private Affair. Her face and figure are fuller than they were in the late 60's when she seemed to have lost too much weight. Gone is Bardot's golden hair. She begins and ends her film career as a brunette. Gone are Bardot's tight sweaters and skirts. She dresses in mostly hippie fashion. Near the end of the movie she Wows you in a steamy love scene when she disrobes and seduces her cousin, a priest. She is more shapely than ever.
For whatever reason Bardot retired not long after this film's release. You'll never see Bardot grow old on the screen. And she didn't have to die young to fix her place in film history. Today she is a living legend and icon.
One final thought. I have never seen a leading actress get slapped around like Bardot. From her first film Crazy For Love to her last film, Don Juan, and countless films in between she gets slapped in her pretty little face. Sure it's all make believe but it sends a terrible message and should be an affront to all women. If you can abuse Bardot, then any woman is fair game and that just isn't right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful transfer of a miserable film 30 Jan 2003
By Scott Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I know it's not cool to speak ill of the dead, but Vadim was a terrible director. Of the Vadim movies I've seen, only The Night Heaven Fell was remotely worth watching, and then only as a stock melodrama.
Don Juan, on the other hand, is yet another example of Vadim's prediliction for directing his wife while she wears little or no clothing. With little or no script. What makes Don Juan different from the other Vadim/Bardot "films"? This time, she lives in a submarine. No, really.
Bardot seduces her cousin (a priest) by telling him about her erotic exploits, in which she humiliates men. Not in a kinky, female-empowerment role-reversal kind of way, but in a boring, time-wasting kind of way.
For some reason, HVE has seen fit to restore this film - it looks gorgeous. Unfortunately, a great transfer and a luscious leading lady do not a great film make.
The one thing I will say for this film is that it taught me to be very careful with fire around concrete. That stuff burns like crazy.
If you're looking for a good Bardot film, try Plucking the Daisy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre! 7 April 2002
By Lee F. Bonaldi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't really figure out what this film was trying to say. Typical of many movies made in the late '60's and early '70's, it now appears incredibly dated. I have to disagree with the other reviewer, however, I think Brigitte Bardot was at the peak of her beauty in this film. If you are a big Bardot fan, you may want to consider this, however, if you are just "Bardot Curious" try something else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Bardot!!! 5 April 2003
By Glenn S. Hawley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the Bardot I love! Captured within Classic early seventie's stylings, But they never Eclipse her great aura. Cool story of sexual domination, and it's inevitable destuction. Directed with a surprisingly steady hand of Roger Vadim. Stylish clothes, sexy french locales, even a prophetic mention of how computers will enhance our lives. Pick it up before it disappears like all great Foreign films/DVDs!
