Films: V is for...

Viva Maria!

In a recent Creamguide (Films) straw poll of saucy Mexican IRA comedy westerns, this came fairly near the top. Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau are blonde circus performers in turn-of-the-century Mexico who accidentally invent the Bucks Fizz skirt routine before hooking up with communist revolutionary George Hamilton. It’s a heady brew and no mistake! Kenny Everett-style sight gags, Good Old Days-style musical numbers and a light dusting of knockabout sixties satire from the usually far from daffy Louis Malle.
