Brigitte Bardot is a national treasure. Despite relentless persecution by the French government for sharia-speech violations, Bardot continues to speak truth to Islamic power. France’s iconic blonde bombshell has been on trial five times for Islamo-criticism and “inciting racial hatred” (Islam is not a race).
Clouzot was already nearing his mid-fifties when he directed the then-25-year-old Bardot to arguably her greatest performance. Viewed today, La Verite is a striking reminder of the talents of two distinct and iconic artists, with Clouzot’s carefully thought-out compositions perfectly capturing Bardot at her most vulnerable and most brilliant.
