La voir et l'écouter

"Ce dvd est un enchantement de bout en bout. Le charme et la presence de BB restent aussi envoutants apres toutes ces annees."
Divine B.B.

"It's finally out: all the Brigitte Bardot music videos. There was nothing of the diva in Bardot's voice and it's doubtful she would even make it past the audition stage of "American Idol." But it was French and it was sexy (enough to elicit the excited Gomez Addams response - "'Tish speak French to me! Ooo la la" when people heard it) and it helped soundtrack the 1960s with its kitschy easy listening flavor and pure pop melodies.

The gem of this two-hour, 35-song collection from a Quebec, Canada subsidiary of Universal is the 1968 French television special "Le Show Bardot," which includes her sexy duets with Serge Gainsbourg on "Comic Strip" and "Bonnie and Clyde" as well as the iconic "Harley Davidson" and the trippily futuristic "Contact." This special was previously available only as a Region 2 DVD import or bootleg tape. The DVD also includes three previously unreleased titles, "La Bis Aux Hippies," "Stanislas," and the instrumental "On The Sunny Side Of The Street," the latter featuring Brigitte strumming a guitar while dressed as a top hat-toting jazz dandy.

The quality isn't great, but it isn't bad either, and is probably as good as one can expect since the source material is PAL. According to's review, "Universal's DVD relies on the quality of the surviving material, which features some obvious film-related flaws. The 1967 special was shot on 16mm and edited roughly in a few spots, so the problems really couldn't be corrected without altering the entire texture of the piece. Colors look milder than they probably should, but the presentation still far outclasses any other out there." And while the setup menu offers English subtitles, I could only get them to work on "Faces of Paris," a 1968 documentary about the making of Le Show Bardot. Whatever. (Who listens to the Divine B.B.'s pop ditties for the lyrics, anyway?)

A bunch of B.B.'s movies were recently released in a DVD box set collection, but this is the Bardot collection to have because, other than Roger Vadim's "Et Dieu...Crea la Femme" (A"nd God Created Woman") and Jean-Luc Godard's "Le Mepris" ("Contempt") (notable for the gratuitous, tacked-on nudity in the opening scene), Bardot's movies are pretty crappy and this is the best way to enjoy her magic. That is, until they finally release her masterpieces, "En Cas du Malheur" (1958) or Clouzot's "La Verite" (1960) stateside.

"This DVD is packed with 3 music specials and they will not disappoint if you are a fan of bardot or even just genuine fun. the music videos are sometimes campy, someimes hilarious- always entertaining. it is totally worth it."
