Synopsis by Mark Deming

In this fluffy comedy-drama, Manina (Brigitte Bardot) is a beautiful young woman who lives with her father, who tends a lighthouse near the ocean. One day, Manina meets two men who are working along the coastline, searching for treasure. Manina becomes infatuated with the younger of the two treasure hunters, and a romance blossoms between the two. In time, Manina must come to the rescue of her new beau when his parter commits an act of betrayal which could cost him his life. Manina, la Fille Sans Voile was one of Bardot's first starring roles; the film was shot in 1952 (when she was just 18), but was little-seen outside France until five years later, after ... And God Created Woman made her an international star. It was shown in America as The Girl In The Bikini and in the UK as The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter.
