What an odd film! 9 years 5 months ago
A-hole husband notices his wife is unhappy (I suspect because she's married to an a-hole), so his solution isto bully her into sleeping with another man (he bullies the other man into it too). This doesn't make her happy (naw! REALLY?), and she ends up falling for a bullied eighth-grader, probably since he's more mature than her husband or the other guy and at least the kid lets her make some choices for herself. It's supposed to be a comedy, but only if your idea of funny is assholery and pedophilia.5 months ago
A surprisingly good movie!
Bertrand Blier's best, in my opinion.
Reminded me of 'Harold and Maud'.
Gérard Depardieu was just awesome!
Patrick Dewaere excellent too. 6 years 6 months ago
