Jean-Claude and Pierrot are two crude drifters who travel the French countryside in pursuit of petty crimes and wanton sex. But when their abduction of a frigid young beautician becomes an exercise in frustration, they find sordid solace in a sex-starved ex-convict.

Bertrand Blier

Bertrand Blier is a French director, actor and dialoguist, born in 1939 in France. His cinema is firmly non-conformist and iconoclastic. His style is sometimes comparable to Jean-Pierre Mocky in the critique of bourgeois morals and the rehabilitation of the pleasures of the body, but his model in the field remains above all Luis Buñuel. We find great moments of provocation in his works (Les Valseuses) and black humour (Buffet froid and Les Acteurs), mixed with a pronounced taste for coarse and offbeat dialogue as well as a certain interest in the absurd. Nevertheless, his films often reach a wide audience, such as Our History and Evening Dress. Marginals, prostitutes, thugs, cops, transvestites, are his favourite themes. He’s a director who puts a lot of emphasis on actors. Jean-Pierre Marielle, Patrick Dewaere and Gérard Depardieu are part of his favourite actors.
