This Valentine’s Day, World Movies has travelled back in time searching for the perfect movie recipe.
Enjoy a saucy pair of revolutionary flicks from France with just the right amount of desire, passion and erotica to satisfy all romantic film lovers:
And God Created Woman
Tuesday 14th February 8.30pm
Brigitte Bardot stars as Juliette, a curvaceous nymphet with a voracious sexual appetite. Juliette makes no effort to restrain her natural sensuality, leaving men and conservative 1950s society in her wake. Not only did And God Created Woman revolutionise the foreign film industry, it also catapulted Brigitte Bardot and director Roger Vadim into international stardom. It pushed the boundaries of the representation of sexuality in American cinema with most available prints of the film being heavily edited to conform to the prevailing censorial standards of 1957.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover
Tuesday 14th February 10pm
Based on D. H. Lawrence’s controversial novel, this daring 1955 French film tells the story of a young married woman Constance, who’s husband has been paralysed from the waist down due to a war injury. His disabilities and emotional neglect for her forces distance between the couple, leading Constance to seek sexual satisfaction from gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors.
