Very funny and surprising sex comedy
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bertrand Blier's film "Femmes Fatales" a/k/a "Calmos" - A very funny and outrageous sex comedy by one of the great French filmmakers. Still groundbreaking after all these years, there's been nothing at all like it. Constantly surprising and hilarious.

The terrific cast is headed by the director's father Bernard Blier and the always wonderful Jean Rochefort as a gynecologist.

Blier's take on the war between men and women is fresh and original and probably as valid and illuminating as any scholarly analysis of the battle of the sexes only much, much funnier. Disappointing that it hasn't been made available on DVD. If presented and promoted properly it could well become a true Home Movie smash.

At least an "8".
