When Brigitte Bardot appeared in Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman in 1957, her beauty set the world alight. But Bardot was more than just a sex symbol: she was a daring actress who worked with some of cinema's most-revered directors, including Jean-Luc Godard and Louis Malle. Film critic Ginette Vincendeau delves into Bardot's career and life, including her four marriages, her decision to "get out elegantly" and retire at a young age, and most notably, her unforgettable performances in Le Mépris, Les Femmes, and Les Pétroleuses. In addition to stunning photos of Bardot in her iconic roles, this visual biography includes 15 facsimiles of posters and other documents.
