It was great to catch Gerard Depardieu as a young man, helps to explain how he became a star as his later material would make you question the choice. Miou Miou and Dewaere are great in this with him.

Gratuitous sex thinly enrobed by an outrageous story. The youthful Gérard Depardieu and his sidekick, Patrick Dewaere, are on the prowl for vixen. They stop at nothing and make Fanny Hill look tame!

What an absolute joy it was to view Gérard Depardieu as a very young man, in this delightfully engaging French film! You can't help but see and understand his animal magnetism - from early on in his acting career. Juxtapose this youthful version of him next to what he looks and acts like today - and you have the very unfortunate accident of unlimited promise - with the ravages of life!
The film itself, is inconsistently good and bad, with gratutious sex thrown in everywhere - almost as a tribute to the promiscuous era it depicts. However two episodes were particularly erotic, despite their twisted etiology, and I wondered if any director today could get away with it. It's a scallywag's version of a "road trip" movie, set with unusual surprises and very French idioms! I recommend it for adult viewing!
