When Jill becomes a movie star, she soon discovers that her private life is destroyed by persistent fans that won't leave her alone. Her mothers ex-lover, Fabio, tries to protect her.


A nice plot, great acting from Bardot and Mastroianni and the superb cinematography by Henri Decaë, make this movie a solid piece of work. Especially the huge close-ups of Brigitte give it something extra.Not Bardot's best movie but certainly worth watching.
