Viva Maria! is a 1965 French comedy-adventure film directed by Louis Malle. Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau co-starred in the movie. They are both revolutionaries, and they are both named Maria. The movie was simultaneously released in French and English-dubbed versions. The movie is set in a fictional Central American country called San Miguel in 1907. Bardot is the daughter of an Irish Republican Army member, and Moreau is a singer who performs for a circus. Bardot joins the circus after her father dies. The two Marias meet a socialist revolutionary named Flores (George Hamilton). The women participate in the revolution in the attempt to create a socialist state. Viva Maria is tongue-in-cheek and serious at the same time. It captured the revolutionary character of the 1960s, but it does not take itself too seriously.
