- General info
Gerard Depardieu plays an at-wit's-end husband, Raoul, who'll go to any lengths to sexually satisfy his wife, Solange (Carole Laure). Raoul decides that the best thing to cure Solange's boredom would be if she took a lover; thus, he chooses Stephane (Patrick Dewaere) for the "job". But Stephane isn't any more successful in arousing Solange than her husband had been. Eventually, it is 13-year old boy who quenches Solange's erotic yearnings!

- Get Out Your Handkerchief review by BE
A sardonic portrayal of two supposedly adult males, and the wife of one of them, none of whom can shift her permanent state of meloncholy and her periodic attacks of the vapours. Her emotions are stirred up when a thirteen year old boy enters her life (excellently played by Riton Liebman) as does his when he experiences cardinal knowledge with her. Bertrand Blier treads where angels fear to with this one. It's funny in places, dark in others but not without its merits. Gerard Depardieu turns in a good performance but with a distance of forty years, is hardly recognisable as the man we know today.
