In this controversial and notorious buddy film, director Bertrand Blier (Get Out Your Handkerchiefs) created what critic Pauline Kael described as “an explosively funny erotic farce – both a celebration and a satire of men’s daydreams.” Gerard Depardieu (in the role that would make him an international star) and Patrick Dewaere portray Jean-Claude and Pierrot, two amoral drifters who travel the French countryside committing petty crimes and harassing the women they encounter, including Miou-Miou, Jeanne Moreau, and, in an early role, Isabelle Huppert. Graced with a justly famous score by Stéphane Grappelli, Going Places remains as shocking and outrageous today as it did upon its initial release. A Cohen Film Collection release

An Explosively Funny Erotic Farce… A Revolutionary Film… Gleefully Anarchic.”
