Going Places

Les valseuses

Directed by Bertrand Blier
France, 1974
Drama, Comedy


Two whimsical, aimless thugs steal, murder, and alternately charm, fight, or sprint their way out of trouble. They take whatever the bourgeois characters value: whether it’s cars, peace of mind, or daughters. Marie-Ange, a passive hairdresser, joins them as a lover.

Critics reviews

Although Les Valseuses often registers as a French equivalent to such would-be challenges to middle- class mores as Corman’s The Wild Angels –- a form of shock titillation designed to place the audience in league with a band of macho hell-raisers, while gasping or giggling at the outrages they perpetrate -– this Gallic box-office hit differs by being slicker, more discontinuous as narrative, and a lot more smug about the goods it has to deliver.
