In 2011, Brigitte Bardot consented to the making of a biographical documentary. She did not participate in the film, but gave the director access to places in her life, her homes, La Madrague and La Garrigue, in Saint-Tropez, her family archives, films made by her father, from her birth to her transformation into a screen goddess. From this invaluable material, the director compiles a rare, sensitive portrait that reveals all the contradictions of a woman and a legendary, passionate actress. It also draws on passages from Initiales BB, an autobiography of the actress, comments by Bulle Ogier and film clips.
