La maman et la putain

Jean Eustache France, 1973

Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

Jean-Pierre plays a beautiful manchild who has a way with the ladies, but really doesn't want to take too much responsibility. Most of the ladies are much smarter than him. If you don't feel like watching the whole movie, I would recommend the monologue by Veronika, played by Francoise Lebrun at the 3 hour mark. Pretty darn remarkable.
