Girl on a Motorcycle is not for mere mortals nor viewers of pasteurized and packaged Hollywood fairy tales, but rather for misfits who will see in it a beautiful depiction of a gutsy attempt for a liberation from morals and ethics of a confined society.
The stunning Marianne Faiftfull is the heroin of this underrated film where she battles herself trying to find a balance between what society requires her to do and what her heart desires for her to become. She is dressed for the occasion in a fur lined leather suit wearing nothing underneath and riding her raging motorcycle from one country to another, each symbolizing her state of mind!
Just gorgeous! Not a only a visual feast but a cult classic "A" film par excellence!
Roydestroy clears the path and renders mundane objects and spaces dangerous!
Sound quality poor. Can hardly hear what they are saying in some scenes without turning up the volume real high. Not much to the movie, just a story about a girl who loves her motorcycle and is torn between 2 guys, her husband and lover. Not worth the money I paid for this DVD.
Bad. Unfortunatly there isn't any lower score. This movie was made in 1968 and will appeal to the acid heads that are still around. The producer really didn't know what he was making, a psychedellic exploitation movie or biker/chickflick. With all the sexual inuendos and blatant phallic representations, it really doesn't fit into any real movie category. Certainly not biker, or cult, unless you consider really bad movies as a cult genre. Marianne Faithful was a much better singer than actress.
This is one of the few movies that is as good now as I remembered it and the ending truly displays human nature. If you haven't seen this movie I wont spoil it by telling the ending. I'll just say, a car flips and catches on fire and nobody looks at or tries to help the driver.
