I saw this movie a long time ago when it was billed as "Femmes Fatales". I remember it as one of the most bizarrely amusing films I've ever seen. While perhaps not as sophisticated as Blier's later efforts, as I remember, it had a crude power and was a scathing look at male/female relations: a kind of cinematic exploration of the male id done with great honesty and comic bravura. I wish I could see it again...but I've never seen it offerred anywhere. It doesn't seem to be on VHS or DVD. If anyone knows where to get it I wish they'd post it here.
