Going Places (DVD)
Directed by Bertrand Blier
Pierrot Patrick Dewaere
Jean-Claude Gérard Depardieu
Directed by Bertrand Blier
A shockingly hilarious sex comedy, GOING PLACES exposes the outrageous desires of a pair of perpetually horny twenty-something brutes.
Jean-Claude (Gérard Depardieu, in the role that made him a star) and Pierrot (Patrick Dewaere) live on instinct, spending their days harassing women and committing petty crimes. Their amorous adventures lead them to a frigid beautician (Miou-Miou), a sex-starved ex-con (Jeanne Moreau) and a teenager desperate to escape bourgeois life (Isabelle Huppert, in one of her first roles). The French title is "Les Valseuses (The Testicles)," isolating the source of their anti-social behavior. Dodging the cops, jilted women and their own rampaging libidos, Jean-Claude and Pierrot are perpetually on the verge of death or imprisonment, and they don't seem to mind.
Directed by Bertrand Blier with an insouciant wit, and graced with a justly famous score by Stéphane Grappelli, GOING PLACES is "an explosively funny erotic farce - both a celebration and a satire of men's daydreams." (Pauline Kael)
DVD Extras Include:
- Theatrical Trailer
- Stills Gallery
"Gritty, funny and touching." - Variety
"A crazy, wacky, often actually slapstick, and very risqué sex comedy that nonchalantly backs its way into the light of sweetness and simple human kindness without even considering compromising its anarchic, rebellious edge, Bertrand Blier's Going Places is a real gem of a movie that Kino has now polished up to look its very best for this Blu-ray release. And none too soon; this one is ripe for rediscovery by a new generation of home-theater cinephiles as a too seldom-invoked classic of post-New Wave French cinema. Highly Recommended. - DVD Talk
