I love this film. Bardot is a goddess.

Thanks Keith...I had to stop myself from capturing just ten stills of her!

This is an all time favourite film of mine too - an endlessly repeatable film!

Beautiful.

Now the real challenge would be to find a single uninteresting frame from this film, one that wouldn't have worked here. I don't think it could be done. What a gorgeous film. I keep going back and forth on which Godard to include first in my own Films I Love series, and this one is in the running. I'm sure I could come up with an entirely different set of equally striking images, that's how rich this film is (like nearly all of Godard's work, I'd add).
