A French lieutenant makes a bet that he can seduce any woman in town in the two weeks before his regiment leaves for maneuvers, but his chosen target (a Parisian divorcée) isn't like other girls he's known.
Cellist Gaspard is living in a big house in the country with his son and three nieces. He likes being quiet. One day, his modest car bumps into a Rolls-Royce, driven by Felicia, a young, beautiful, wealthy and temperamental woman. And she knows it. She is very angry at him because he seems not to be under her charm. She decides to seduce him, but Gaspard did not feel like letting his life being invaded by such a woman.Written by
Irresistibly tempting the socialite model urban Felicity (Bridget Bardot) duels her seductive charms against the baffling and equally determined country cellist Gaspard (Jean-Pierre Cassel) who refuses to return the compliment. Mostly played out at Gaspards country home over one evening, Nina Companéez and Michel Deville's plot allow both actors to display their versatility. Particularly appealing is one scene when Felicity has Gaspard act as a woman and she takes on the role of a man wanting to get his way with with 'her'. We see Bardot, always flirtatious, but strongly characterised and not just portrayed as a flimsy 'sex kitten' such as in "Les Novices'. When together, Cassal and Bardots performances are so palpably magnetic, that some scenes of them alone seem inferior. Totally absorbing.
