"With an original title named after the French term for male genitalia, Bertrand Blier's early feature lets viewers know right away what they're getting into. Gerard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere star in Blier's bawdy comedy as Jean-Claude and Pierrot, two drifters who roam about stealing and taking whatever women they want, usually by force. Apparently on a search for nothing in particular except to flout bourgeois values whenever possible, the shameless duo finds targets wherever they turn (including two of France's most prominent actresses, Jeanne Moreau and Isabelle Huppert). Eventually, the two stumble across an unlikely comrade in Marie-Ange, a taciturn hairdresser who exerts an oddly calming influence on the rambunctious pair. A daring blend of freewheeling comedy, rampant sex, and unabashed misogyny, Blier's film is not for the timid, but for those who like their humor crude and graphic - and who want to see Depardieu and Dewaere going head-to-head - Les Valseuses certainly won't disappoint"

Blier's farcical thriller stars Gérard Depardieu as Alphonse, a drifter obsessed with murder and death. Structured as an absurdist nightmare, the film has a logic that is at once twisted and stark. A husband befriends his wife's murderer, a high-ranking official plans his own assassination, a lost knife is found in the stomach of a subway passenger. Together with the Chief of Police, and a killer who is afraid of the dark, Alphonse is embroiled in an inescapable complicity of murder, treachery and paranoia which draws him closer and closer to a fateful end

Déjà, en culottes courtes, quand je rentrais de l'école, je ne manquais pas de passer, avec mon gros cartable, devant le magasin Thirion, articles pour dames, dans la vitrine duquel, sur des bustes sans têtes, resplendissaient d'admirables soutifs. Je ralentissais le pas, et la tête retournée vers les bonnets sublimes, je me remplissais les yeux jusqu'à l'évanouissement. Des imbéciles toujours prêts à se dévouer m'allongeaient sur un banc et me tapotaient les joues. Furieux d'être extirpé de mon rêve satiné, je leur balançais mes bottines dans la gueule." Ce n'est que le début... Le gamin, élevé dans une famille très bizarre, développe ce goût immodéré pour le soutien-gorge dans l'âge adulte. Il faut dire que, d'abord représentant en lingerie féminine, il devient directeur des Ressources humaines (!) d'une fabrique de soutiens-gorge
