Les Valseuses is the controversial, groundbreaking classic that shot Gerard Depardieu to stardom and also marked the arrival of a major new talent in director Bertrand Blier. One of the key French films of the seventies.

Two aimless drifters spend their days wandering the French countryside looking for trouble and women. Their hedonistic spree of petty crime and debauchery usually results in them fighting or running their way out of trouble.

The delinquent pair are joined by a supporting array of characters, played by Jeanne Moreau, Miou-Miou and Isabelle Huppert in one of her earliest roles.

This 1974 French classic remains relatively unknown, yet still feels as original and fresh as ever. The film follows two ageing delinquents on their perverse jaunt across France. From the opening shot, where Jean-Claude (Gerard Depardieu) is being wheeled along in a shopping trolley by his companion, it is clear this is a slightly demented picture. They give chase to a frightened middle-aged lady, molest her and steal her handbag. This sets the tone of the film. From this point on we witness a morass of petty crime, verbal abuse, sexual antics, and violence by the two friends. Jean-Claude even sexually abuses his friend along the way. If this sounds nothing short of disturbing, then it does justice to the film. However, there is another side to this movie. Interlaced with the depravity is sensitivity. Combined with the sense of hopelessness they face, the characters take on a greater realism and develop in to three dimensional beings. We see them gradually develop an understanding of how to cope with their lives.
The performances are superb, the dialogue sparkles, and the direction is original, conveying the anarchic freedom with which the two men lead their lives.
This certainly will not be to everyone's taste, but in an era of banality, this film shows what can be done with no money, a great script and a talented cast. A gem of a picture.
