Reviews

A sociologist researching a book interviews murderess Camille, who tells him the story of her life. Put in a reform school as a child for suspected patricide, and later transferred to an orphanage, she escaped and tricked a young man called Clovis into marrying her. After attempting to kill Clovis' mother, she fled to Paris, where she began an affair with a night-club singer. Camille has left a trail of destruction and deceit in her wake, which now threatens to engulf the sociologist.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Une Belle Fille Comme Moi aka A Gorgeous Girl Like Me is one of Truffaut's lesser films, more a diversion than anything particularly substantial, but it's not without its moments. The plot reads like a film noir staple - naïve sociologist Stanislas Prévine (Andre Dussollier, making his debut) becomes so enraptured with the hard luck case doing time for murder that he's chosen as the subject of his thesis, Camille Bliss (Bernadette Lafont), that he takes everything she says almost at face value and explains away her avaricious nature, setting himself up for a big fall. Nor is he her only victim, as her life story consists of going from one man to the next, exploiting them as much as they exploit her (if not more), luring one to his death and trying to arrange the same fate for another two in a series of `bets with fate.' But despite being based on a series noir novel, this takes the basic femme fatale model and plays it as broad comedy. Camille Bliss isn't sultry, stylish or mysterious but mouthy, common as muck and about as subtle as a sledgehammer in the groin. As Dussolier's infatuated typist observes, "Lack of love, sublimated penis, isn't it all far fetched? Has it never occurred to you that she's just a tramp?"

The film is filtered through her distorted self-serving memories as she talks a mile a minute, her narration is often clearly at odds with what we see, though at times absurdly heightened versions of events such being kicked literally through the air by her father are shown through her eyes as to emphasise how exaggerated her hard luck stories really are.
