“Gleefully anarchic”
—Pauline Kael

“Gritty, funny, and touching”

“One of the most mordant satires ever made”
The New York Times

Two brutes follow their balls, hence the title, as they grope, steal, and charm their way across the French countryside. Along the way, they pick up a shampoo girl, an ex-con, and a teenager in Bertrand Blier’s amoral “cross between a road-trip and Molotov cocktail.” (VARIETY) Dubbed “France’s answer to EASY RIDER,” this box-office smash made stars out of its cast — Gerard Depardieu, Patrick Dewaere, Miou-Miou, and Isabelle Huppert (in one of her earliest film appearances) — and became an instant classic when it debuted nearly 50 years ago. Newly restored and as potent as ever.
