Going Places

Bertrand Blier's rampantly and repulsively misogynist first feature (the French title, Les Valseuses, translates roughly as "the testicles") stars Gerard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere as a couple of violent lowlifes merrily abusing women—including Isabelle Huppert, Miou-Miou, and Jeanne Moreau—some of whom come back for more. The popularity of this obnoxious 1974 buddy film made Blier's reputation, though U.S. viewers were deprived by censors of about five minutes of nastiness—which have now been thoughtfully restored. In French with subtitles.
