Comedy or misogyny? - Going Places review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This was the first film Depardieu was in and it made him a star in France. The film was a big hit in 1974 and although it feels somewhat dated today it still has a cult following. The film is absurd and outrageous at times and certainly not politically correct. The way the film represents women is questionable and as a woman I found this film uncomfortable to watch at times. But overall I think I found Blier's blatant attempts to shock a bit tiresome really.

Shocking by today's standards, but with a certain charm. - Going Places review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

While it is very much a product of its time, I have to agree with another reviewer about the level of misogyny and violence against women in this film. At first it seemed mildly amusing with the characters of Jean-Claude and Pierrot as likeable rogues who steal what they want and have sex with who they want and within the context of the film it was somewhat justifiable, but halfway through the film it started to made me feel fairly uncomfortable. Despite the uncomfortable aspects of the film it's extremely watchable and strangely has a certain charm about it.

Pointless and misogynistic - Going Places review by Ir

Spoiler Alert

Films of the 1970s often explore the theme of the anti-hero. But the anti-hero film needs some interest in the characters, some purpose. Not in this film. It's a horrible tale of arbitrary criminal activity, sexual harassment and violence. It's completely unredeemed and nothing is learned. It enjoys the humiliation and degradation of women. Avoid.
