Short 1964 black-and-white documentary featurette hosted by Sean Connery and featuring the real-life inspiration for the character of Q, Major Geoffrey Boothroyd with a discussion of the gun weaponry used by James Bond.
From the start, the film offers astonishing pictures to tell the story of a beautiful young lady, who wants to join the high society by marriage, by any means. On her way to the big city (Berlin) we see her lying in a Mercedes, the front passenger seat still turned horizontal. She dresses at the same moment, as she sees the city landmark: a big radio tower. Casually, she works as a photo model. So she drifts easily from date to date, private or professional, hard to tell which it is.
The story deals with a rare issue, the ambition of a woman to exchange her youth for security candidly, without the ability to cheat. Two years before the student revolution in Europe, she is the contemporary Holly Golightly, and almost an anti- Godard Brigitte Bardot out of "Le Mepris".
Eva Renzi's performance is beautiful, it is the performance of her life. The film is deeply lyrical, touching by his change of speed, the jazz music and the occasional documentary style.
