In the lead role, Brigitte Bardot's ass. Brilliant casting.
The saturated colors and incredible cinematography make this beautiful to look at and the soundtrack is rather mesmerizing. It's filled with many stars too (ranging from Bridget Bardot to Jack Palance to the legendary director Fritz Lang). However, the story itself doesn't seem to ever delve deeper than "I don't love you" "Why don't you love me?" "Because I don't"
Poetic masterpiece! Fritz Lang as himself is fantastic. Brigitte Bardot is amazing, some incredible scenes.. Many great references are presented throughout the film.
