Musique - Les Petites Femmes by Jeanne Moreau and Brigitte Bardot
Viva Maria! this weekend for the first time and absolutely loved it! I am a fan of Jeanne Moreau, but I'd never seen a Brigitte Bardot movie before (I know, I know). In all honesty, I wasn't expecting much from her except being incredibly beautiful. But she is definitely a talented actress and comedienne.
This was a hilarious movie that reminded me somewhat of The Three Amigos, only in French and with much sexier leads. The song being sung over the back story of Bardot's Maria and her father blowing things up made me seriously laugh out loud ("What's that she has in her mouth?"). And in the scene where Moreau's Maria is riling up the villagers, I loved how the magician, Diogène, says "This is her big scene." I love it when movies are both overtly and subtly funny. And watching Brigitte Bardot man a machine gun is pretty damn funny. I'll definitely be putting this movie on my Amazon Wish List!
