... Blier's portrait of showy machismo, reflexive bad behavior and empty pleasure is his sad commentary on seventies culture.
Audience Reviews for Going Places
an anarchic road trip movie, very much of it's time (1970s). the french title les valseuses translates to 'the waltzers,' a slang term for testicles, so the film should probably be called 'the balls.' there's plenty of sex as the two buddies try to make every woman they encounter, in between robberies and stealing cars. jeanne moreau has a touching role as an older woman just released from prison and also look for a very young isabelle huppert. much fun and not for the prudish.
I only wish I had seen it when I was a teenager. Very pleasant, often very funny, lots of nacked women. It interesting to see how society might have evolved hadn't it been for AIDS.
Bizarro comedy from Bertrand Blier, in which two petty criminals spend their time aimlessly trying to get laid and score enough money to get by on. Very chauvinistic and occasionally disturbing, it has enough WTF moments to keep the viewer involved.
Worth a rental easily.
