Creative inspiration led Blier to write a novel and then realize it as a movie, fortuitously aligning stars both rising (Gérard Depardieu, Isabelle Huppert, Patrick Dewaere and Blier’s real-life partner Miou-Miou) and established (Jeanne Moreau, Brigitte Fossey) for a defining French cinematic corollary to American road movies of the era. Depardieu and Dewaere are two drifters, off to act out with sex and violence.
