GORGEOUS GIRL LIKE ME, A

Synopsis

Francois Truffaut's bittersweet black comedy stars the beautiful Bernadette Lafont (from Truffaut's debut short film, Les Mistons) as an alluring, manipulative murderess (Camille Bliss) who holds a mysterious charm over her unwitting male victims. When Camille is visited in prison by a naive criminology student (Andre Dussollier - Lemming) doing research for his thesis on unlawful ladies, he soon emerges as her next tale to be told. Through a flashback narrative, Camille recounts her wild rise to fame and fortune as a singing star, littered along the way with improper liaisons, infidelity - and maybe murder! All-the-while, her besotted confidant wants to believe in her innocence. This jet black French comedy sees Truffaut continue the theme of the manipulative, man-eating heroine started in Jules and Jim, and remains one of the director's most enjoyable films of the 1970s.
