La Motocyclette (The Girl on a Motorcycle) - The Movie

La Motocyclette (The Girl on a Motorcycle) film, also known as Naked Under Leather, is a 1968 British-French film starring Marianne Faithfull, Alain Delon, Roger Mutton, Marius Goring, and Catherine Jourdan.

The film follows newly-married Rebecca as she leaves her husband's Alsatian bed on her prized motorbike—symbol of freedom and escape—to visit her lover, Daniel, in Heidelberg. En route, she indulges in psychedelic and erotic reveries as she relives her changing relationship with the two men, before crashing into a truck at the film's conclusion.

I consider the film to be part of the neo noir genre of filmmaking. The director borrowed some stylistic elements from film noir, but instead of using dark elements, it incorporated more psychedelic visuals and story lines. Rated R for adult content.

The complete film is now available for viewing on YouTube or right here. (1:27 minutes).
