Great flick - if you hate women. It's confounding because Dewaere (who killed himself years later) and Depardieu have amazing chemistry. Nuytten's cinematography and Grappelli's score are charming, and so are turns by Moreau, Huppert and Fossey. Regardless, it gave me real heartache to watch two cretins sexually molest and assault pretty much every woman in the film. Not what I consider comedy.
