Love, wine, and revolution: Love on a Pillow. Starring Brigitte Bardot and Robert Hossein, and directed by Roger Vadim. This 1962 romance drama flick is understated, and needs to have a comeback!
Movie Night: Love on a Pillow
What starts as a proper young lady going to collect her inheritance outside of Paris, leads to a tryst that turns her life sideways. There are sizzling romance scenes, lingering close ups that remind us why film is always better at driving emotion, and of course B.B.’s famous fashion. From chic trench coats and rabbit fur berets, iconic little black dresses, and her famous red headband, the styling in this film doesn’t let you down.
It’s one of those films you have to watch on a Sunday night, with wine and cheese that you can snack on throughout. There’s passion, love-making, culture, and lots of sweet jazz.
And the revolution…? That lies within a woman, realizing her own value, and finally becoming free and independent. Brigitte depicts her journey from co-dependent to free spirit with elegance and sex appeal, making her one of my forever muses that will always inspire me.
