Loulou (1980)

France 110m, Colour
Director: Maurice Pialat; Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Gérard Depardieu, Guy Marchand, Humbert Balsan, Bernard Tronczak, Christian Boucher

LoulouNelly is an unhappy housewife who finds extramarital excitement in the arms of Loulou, an unkempt womanizing lout of a man who lives off women who are willing to share their money as well as their beds. Andre, the jealous and abusive husband fights to maintain their relationship, despite being roughed up by the much larger Loulou. As a highly erotic exploration of class distinctions and the lure of the “bad boy”, Loulou is an interesting dark drama, however, due to its lack of a single sympathetic character, it fails to be as engaging as it might otherwise be if there was someone to like (Klaus Ming January 2015).
