Moi, Je Joue - Brigitte Bardot

Who doesn't love a good old fashion Goddard film to leave you puzzled and somewhat sad? I knew that was exactly what you needed on this late Sunday night. Much of the film is pretty hammy and slapsticky (which might explain why it's my favourite Goddard as of yet). But the thing I love most about Goddard characters is that while they're suppose to be adults, in many ways, they're incredibly childlike, goofy and mellow dramatic (as demonstrated above).

Oh and I love the fact that Jean-Paul Belmondo casually mentions that Breathless is playing on television in A Woman is a Woman. Veeeery clever, Goddard.

Very self-referential.
