Time Out says

A huge hit in France, about two youths waving a finger at society. Their pursuits include car theft, robbery, three-way sex, and general impulsive offensiveness, while their development is limited to the degree of selectivity they start showing towards their compulsive fucking. Forsaking a girl who can't have an orgasm, they cultivate an older woman just out of prison, on the assumption that she must be dying for it (which she is, literally). With a couple of deaths sending them on the run, their rambling delinquency takes on rather more romantic fugitive connotations. The physical robustness and frankness prevails (the film deliberately evokes the sounds and smells of sex), but as the characters develop into something approaching human beings, much of the bite is lost. It ends relatively tame: an unfocused comedy whose sense of the outlandish extends little further than screwing on the back seat of a Rolls. A lot of good points, though.

This is a fantastic film in my opinion, it shows freedom and what it was like back in the day in france. i know because i have a french dad who lived in a very poor lower class family and therefore has been through many experiences like in the Valseuses. fantastic film, it is not vulgure, you have to see past those points, at first i thought, what is this film? but after watching it a bit, i realsied it is nothing compared to the films out nowadays and since my first time watching it i have probably seen it at least ten times.
