A shockingly hilarious sex comedy, Going Places exposes the outrageous desires of a pair of perpetually horny twenty-something brutes.
Jean-Claude (Gerard Depardieu, in the role that made him a star) and Pierrot (Patrick Dewaere) live on instinct, spending their days harassing women and committing petty crimes. Their amorous adventures lead them to a frigid beautician (Miou-Miou), a sex-starved ex-con (Jeanne Moreau) and a teenager desperate to escape bourgeois life (Isabelle Huppert, in one of her first roles). The French title is Les Valseuses (The Testicles), isolating the source of their anti-social behavior. Dodging the cops, jilted women and their own rampaging libidos, Jean-Claude and Pierrot are perpetually on the verge of death or imprisonment, and they don't seem to mind.
Directed by Bertrand Blier with an insouciant wit, and graced with a justly famous score by Stephane Grappelli, Going Places is "an explosively funny erotic farce - both a celebration and a satire of men's daydreams." (Pauline Kael)
