The Girl on the Bridge (French: La fille sur le pont) is a French film released in 1999, directed by Patrice Leconte, starring Daniel Auteuil and Vanessa Paradis.

The plot centres around knifethrower Gabor (Auteuil) and a girl called Adèle (Paradis), who intends to kill herself by jumping from a bridge. Gabor intervenes to prevent the suicide and persuades Adèle to become the target girl in his knifethrowing act. The film then follows their relationship as they travel around Europe with the act.

The soundtrack features Marianne Faithfull.
