Good Movie | Girl on a Motorcycle



 Sourced from everywhere but mostly Verdoux & London Lee



The Girl on a Motorcycle or better yet, Naked Under Leather (as the film was called in France), was a British / French film directed in 1968 by Jack Cardiff. The film starred Marianne Faithfull and was due to air at Cannes but due to the May 68 riots it never did. The plot is fairly simple: A woman leaves her husband and zips away on her motorcycle to be with her lover.  Plenty of sexual and psychedelic experiences happen along the way.
