recently, and it's a rough watch. It's about two assholes who go around harrassing random women, who end up loving it. It was the third highest-grossing film in France in 1974, after
, which is mind-blowing: it's really the kind of movie that can only be watched today with a proper understanding of the time and society it was created in. I have a hard time believing that a remake was a good idea in the first place: either it's faithful to the original, which makes it unwatchable, or it's fully changed, which makes it pointless. I may have a look at Turturro's version out of curiosity, though.
