About the film:
"This 1956 classic film changed the way sexuality and eroticism would be portrayed in cinema. Though not especially innovative in visual form or mise-en- scene, Vadim’s film was revolutionary in its view of eroticism.[…] The term “sex-kitten” was coined for Brigitte Bardot for her sexually liberated role as Juliette in her [then] husband Roger Vadim's debut film. Bardot’s exotic nubile beauty is in sync with her orphaned character’s rebellious disavowal of social mores in the seaside town of St. Tropez. […] Although condemned by some cultural gatekeepers and critics as scandalous — "And God Created Woman" was heavily edited, and dubbed, for its U.S. release — Bardot’s portrayal of a freethinking young woman became the celebrated subject of Simone de Beauvoir’s 1959 essay “The Lolita Syndrome.” In it, de Beauvoir described Brigitte Bardot as a “locomotive of women’s history.” The petite but curvy actress captured the communal global imaginations of women and men alike. […] No doubt that the movie further anticipated the sexual liberation of the late 1960s and early 1970s..."
