Tenue de Soirée Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Menage begins as a comedy of sorts, but be warned: it develops into a very dark, very confusing probe into the seamier aspects of Parisian life. [[Performer~P87517~Gerard Depardieu~gérarddepardieu]] plays a crude but charismatic thief, whose own gayness does not prevent his commiserating with those of the opposite sex. [[Performer~P49536~Miou-Miou~mioumiou]] and [[Performer~P6642~Michel Blanc~michelblanc]] are young, impoverished lovers who fall under [[Performer~P87517~Depardieu~gérarddepardieu]]'s influence. He gains their confidence by introducing them to kinky sex, then sucks them into a vortex of crime. Director [[Performer~P82126~Bertrand Blier~bertrandblier]], who in most of his films has explored the awesome power (rather than pleasure) of sex, nearly outdoes himself in Menage (aka Tenue de Soiree). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
