The producers of Une Balles dans le Canou (A Slug in the Heater) undoubtedly believed that the magical name of BARDOT on the marquee would draw in patrons by the thousands. Imagine the surprise of some of those patrons when the film's star turned out not to be Brigitte Bardot, but her younger sister Mijanou. Alas, the younger BARDOT has none of her celebrated sibling's sensuality or charisma. The story concerns a couple of ex-servicemen who engineer a robbery, only to run afoul of professional criminals. There is little to recommend the film outside of the assured supporting performance of the always interesting Roger Hanin.
