Get Out Your Handkerchiefs

Préparez vos mouchoirs

Directed by Bertrand Blier
Belgium, France, 1978


Gérard Depardieu plays an at-wit’s-end husband, Raoul, who’ll go to any lengths to sexually satisfy his wife, Solange (Carole Laure). Raoul decides that the best thing to cure Solange’s boredom would be if she took a lover; thus, he chooses Stéphane (Patrick Dewaere) for the “job.”
