Get Out Your Handkerchiefs (Bertrand Blier, 1978)


A resolutely French absurdity, wherein a young and slim Gérard Depardieu is unable to satisfy his wife, so he turns to the stranger at the next table, a bookish primary school sports teacher. He also fails, as does his next-door neighbour, but not his 13-year-old pupil... Writer-director Bertrand Blier is after the giddy nightmare logic that Buñuel had brought into fashion, and he succeeds to a point, though he lacks Buñuel's visual flair and acuity.
