Movie Info

Genevieve (Brigitte Bardot) is a prim and proper girl from a middle class family. She dreams of finding Mr. Right, getting married and settling down to a predictable, uncomplicated life of a loving spouse. When a distant relative dies, she travels to a small town to claim her inheritance. When she enters the wrong hotel room, she saves a man who has overdosed on sleeping pills. The stranger and his heroine return to Paris where they commence to drink, fornicate and fight. He tries to drag her down into the alcoholic downward spiral of his wretched life. They end up in Florence, Italy where the man can no longer deny he loves and need the woman who saved his life. The screen play was co-written by director Roger Vadim with Claude Choublier. The film marks Bardot's first attempt at a completely dramatic character portrayal.

Critic Reviews for Love on a Pillow

All Critics (2)

Bardot shows little range throughout, and one can't help but think that there is a much better film for the finding, if only for a different star.
