Summary[edit]

"Two whimsical, aimless thugs harass and assault women, steal...and alternately charm, fight or sprint their way out of trouble. They take whatever the bourgeois characters value: cars, peace of mind or daughters. Marie-Ange, a jaded, passive hairdresser, joins them as lover, cook and mother confessor. She's on her own search for seemingly unattainable sexual pleasure."[3]
