CGiii Comment

Inexplicably, this is billed as a comedy.

There's absolutely nothing funny about this distasteful, objectionable, misogynistic drivel.

It's almost like the French version of the hideous Clockwork Orange...

Blier directs well...but, for what reason? To offend and irritate - he does both, admirably.

A wholly vile film.

The(ir) Blurb...

Two whimsical, aimless thugs harass and assault women, steal, murder, and alternately charm, fight, or sprint their way out of trouble. They take whatever the bourgeois characters value: whether it's cars, peace of mind, or daughters. Marie-Ange, a jaded, passive hairdresser, joins them as lover, cook, and mother confessor. She's on her own search for seemingly unattainable sexual pleasure.
