Product Description

Preparez vos mouchoirs [Get Out Your Hankerchiefs]

"substantial and sophisticated" New York Times

An unlikely winner of the Best Foreign Film Oscar - not because it didn t thoroughly deserve it, but because that award usually goes to far less provocative films than Bertrand Blier s outrageous quasi-romantic comedy about French social and sexual mores (the title means Get Out Your Handkerchiefs , but it s not just tears that need mopping up). Solange (Carole Laure) is deeply depressed, and her utterly devoted but deeply concerned husband Raoul (Gérard Depardieu) decides that the solution is for complete stranger Stéphane (Patrick Dewaere, Depardieu s sparring partner in Blier s earlier Les Valseuses) to become her lover. But while this new arrangement turns Raoul and Stéphane into firm friends, Solange remains deeply dissatisfied, until a trip to the countryside leads to a chance encounter with Christian (Riton Liebman), who, unlike the other men in her life, is interested in her mind as well as her body. There s just one little problem...

Format: DVD
I actually watched the film the whole way through and I can tell you that misogyny was not its message! An extremely thin Depardieu has a strange fascination with his incredibly boring wife who either sits or knits (or faints without a clear medical reason). In order to cheer her up he invites a total stranger to sleep with her. As the stranger is a teacher, the couple get invited to a kids' summer camp. There Mrs Boring becomes fascinated and entangled with a 13 year old child genius. Everyone she sleeps with ends up with a cable knit jumper. Rather like picking at a scab, this film had some fascination, but ultimately once was enough. I found it similar to Betty Blue in that I had no idea why the men were obsessed with the dull heroine.

Bertrand Blier has rather an odd opinion of women, usually we are all gagging for it and have no discrimination. I don't mind that, it seems to be his view and it leads to some very interesting films.
Here the leading female character (not heroine, she is deeply unsympathetic) is completely passive. Her devoted husband decides he is not satisfying her sexually, so tries to find a man who can. After a lot of unlikely situations she finds someone. Here is the disturbing bit, he is a thirteen year old schoolboy at a Summer camp. Never mind that he is precocious, intelligent, alienated from his peers and that they form a real emotional as well as physical bond, he is thirteen (although the actor was older, I think).

If you do not want to know the result, look away now.
She ends up leaving the loving husband and equally devoted lover to become housekeeper to the boys family and presumably carry on with their affair (what were his parents thinking of?) while the men look through the windows.
The film has some good touches, I rather liked her sitting there in the nude knitting jumpers for them all, but it isn't one of Blier's best and the paedophilic aspects added to my disatisfaction with this film.
I have given it three stars, because he can't make a bad film and maybe I'm overreacting (I find older men having relationships with young girls creepy too, which most people don't seem to mind), so watch it and decide for yourselves.

Format: DVD
I like Gerald Depardieu, but not the part he had to play in this film. It was made in 1978 and won awards but now seems crude and dated in its attitudes to women. The story is pretty stupid: a husband (Depardieu) wants to spice up his wife's sex life. He invites a total stranger to sleep with her. She is not consulted and appears totally passive. I gave up after about 30 mins.

HASH(0x901b6498) out of 5 stars Wrong Region 12 Mar. 2012
By Edward J. Mulderick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I purchased a copy of this DVD from an Amazon affiliated seller. It was in PAL format although the specs indicated
"All Regions". It wouldn't play at all on my system. It only works in England. The other version with the blue cover is "USA Region 1" but it's G rated (?) and only in French. I can't understand why Amazon USA sells DVDs in both foreign and American formats. It's confusing and misleading.
