When a 25-year old Parisian student, Gérard Morere, hears a lecture about a treasure Troilus lost at sea after the Peloponnesian War, he thinks he knows where it is, thanks to a discovery he made five years before when diving near the island of Levezzi. He gets friends and an innkeeper to invest in his dream, enough to get him to Tangiers where he convinces a cigarette smuggler, Erick, to take him to the island. There he finds Manina, the light-keeper's daughter, 18 and beautiful and pure. Erick thinks Gérard may have conned him, but Gérard's belief in the treasure compels patience. Dives by day and romance at night. Can Gérard's romantic ideas survive in the harsh rocks of Levezzi?

User Review


Rating: 7/10

Bardot was the newly discovered teenager, the rebel against strict bourgeois upbringing, the woman who takes her pleasure with whom she chooses, and follows her own inclinations and desires…

By the time Bardot's second film, "Manina, la fille sans voile" was released in 1952, the blushing teenager had fallen by the wayside; instead there emerged a brave, wilder girl, liberated from the repressed rules of society…

The eroticism displayed by Bardot throughout this film was undeniably challenging, though the fashions may seem rather absolute today…

The impact she made may be measured by the fact that English censors felt compelled to cut 29 of the 86 minutes of this film…
