LES RENCONTRES DOCUMENTAIRES - BRIGITTE BARDOT, L'INSOUMISE

Representation

Presentation

In French
Brigitte Bardot agreed to open the doors of La Madrague to Mireille Dumas and to speak as rarely about her life, her career, her struggles. An exceptional exchange which is one of the last appearances of Brigitte Bardot filmed in her privacy, in her house in Saint-Tropez, she who now stays away from the cameras.

“I don’t see myself as an old lady,” said Brigitte Bardot in the flamboyance and carefreeness of her 22 years. And yet, the one who was considered the most beautiful woman in the world celebrated her 88th birthday. Being and having been could symbolize the life and the challenge of the one we nickname BB, two initials that have become legendary. Scandalous for some, muse of women's liberation for others, she embodied the angel and the devil. Brigitte Bardot does not speak out about herself, she approaches all subjects with frankness, she accepts old age with resignation, without artifice or cheating.
This film highlights how the star found herself trapped in fame and how this oppressive notoriety shattered her private life. As she escaped from the confines of the family and the couple, BB left the cinema, which she never really liked, before he left her.

From the image of a sex symbol to the ambassador of the animal cause, this portrait, thanks to numerous archives, film extracts and this major interview given to Mireille Dumas, shows all the complexity and paradoxes of Brigitte Bardot: his rebellion and his submission, his strength and his fragility, his apparent joie de vivre and his dark side, his great freedom, but also his determination to reinvent himself to lead a fight that has long been misunderstood and yet avant-garde.

Screening in the presence of director-producer Mireille Dumas
