Nothing that interesting but benefits from quite natural and chatty contributions
17 February 2007 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Intrigued by her own experience playing a Bond girl alongside Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights, Maryam d'Abo looks at the Bond girls from the original appearance of Ursula Andress through to one of the most recent entries (*raise eyebrow*) in the form of Halle Berry. I saw this piece of fluff as it was rolled out again with the release of 2006's Casino Royale but actually found it quite enjoyable for what it was.

The film doesn't get every Bond girl of course but it gets a good selection of them involved and mostly draws some nice conversations out of them. d'Abo meets her interviewees in mostly relaxed situations and it seemed to work pretty well as she gets more than just obvious interviews and it is more like a load of chats. It is nice to hear personal recollections from some of the Bond girls even if none of them really provide any strong or memorable anecdotes or insights; however where they are just reminiscing they are all pretty cool. Some of them try to inject some social significance into the role and they fall flat. Yes, the nature of the Bond girl has changed with society but beyond this there isn't anything beyond very simplistic attempts at commentary.

The natural contributions do tend to make it worth a look though with only Halle Berry meeting d'Abo like it was just yet another interview in a long day of interviews to promote her film. D'Abo is a reasonably good host in how she draws out the chat but not in her delivering narration, where she is a bit stiff and dull. Overall though it is an entertaining enough piece of fluff that benefits from a good collection of quite natural and chatty contributions. Nothing that interesting though but good enough for the short running time.
