a young woman living in Paris, believes she is the reincarnation of
Don Juan. She visits a priest to tell him she has killed a man. He comes
to her elegant flat - her father had died leaving her wealthy - and
she tells the priest stories about seduced men. She describes herself
as a spider, telling the priest that 'sex is easy' (after seducing him),
but destruction takes preparation. Jeanne then gets involved - sexually
- with her best friend Léporella.
was the final feature film for Brigitte Bardot, interestingly directed
by Roger Vadim who also made her breakout movie in 1956 (...And
God Created Woman). It features the erotic sensuality that made
her an International star, plus - for the first time - a major lesbian
sequence (with Jane Birkin who would go on to star in Serge Gainsbourg's
T'AIME a few years later).
