Storyline

Not so quiet, Joey and Carl's days in Clichy... The two men, living in a small apartment, are penniless writers, with not enough to eat, which does not prevent them from enjoying life. One of their main interests is to get laid with women of various ages, physical appearances and nationalities. Among them, a neighbor in need, a fourteen-year-old half-witted girl, an American newspaper vendor who tends to smash up everything before making love, a Swedish woman who mourns her late husband..., all being merely sex toys they play with Written by Guy Bellinger

Trivia

When the film came to the United States, it was seized by the authorities as pornography. The years have melted away its controversy and the uncut version was released to DVD in 2004. See more »

Quotes

Joey: Better venereal disease than a moribund peace and quiet. You know, now I know what makes the world civilised. Vice, disease, mendacity, lechery... shit! The French are a great people, even if they are syphilitic.

Extremely disappointing
23 March 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Henry Miller and have read many of his books. When I saw a DVD of "Quiet Days in Clichy" on my local video store's "Staff Pick's" shelf, I excitedly plucked it off and read the back.

It sounded great, an artistic rendition of one of Miller's works. I took it home practically rubbing my hands.

As the previous reviewer commented, the acting is abysmal. Painful to watch. What a disappointment.

The photography is good. There are some (filming) tricks employed, but do nothing to salvage this failure.
