...And God Created Woman

...And God Created Woman ★½

I tried to go into this with an open mind but it soon became obvious that ...And God Created Woman really is sexist and not a good film. Pretty much everything I thought about it and more is in this excellent review by Kevin Jones, who says it far better than I could. In case you don’t click on that link (and you should because he’s a great writer), one thing that made me laugh was that the movie does little more than follow Bardot around “like a dog with its tongue hanging out of its mouth”.

An additional point - if it was a better film I’d take the time to explain my thoughts about the racism underlying the scene at the end where Bardot joins with the band to dance and goes wild. But it’s not so I won’t.
