Gérard Depardieu is Crazy in Love in Exclusive Trailer for 40th Anniversary Restoration of ‘Get Out Your Handkerchiefs’

Written by on February 28, 2019 

Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, Bertrand Blier’s Get Out Your Handkerchiefs has been restored by the Cohen Film Collection and returning to theaters at Quad Cinema on March 15. Starring Gérard Depardieu, Patrick Dewaere, and Carole Laure, the film follows a love triangle between the characters that turns both more comedic and more emotional. Winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1979, as well as the National Society of Film Critics award for Best Picture, we’re pleased to present the exclusive trailer and poster for the restoration.

Beloved by Pauline Kael, she said, “The social comedy Blier’s work is essentially sexual comedy: sex screws us up… and some people are so twisted that no matter what try to do for them they wreck everything… Sexually, life is a keystone comedy, and completely amoral—we have no control over who or what excites us.”

See the trailer and poster below, and one can also head to Quad for a spotlight on the director starting March 8, featuring Going Places, Ménage, Too Beautiful for You, Buffet Froid, and more.

Blier reconvened his Going Places leading men Gérard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere for a sweeter and funnier exploration of love and its evolving configurations. Doting spouse Depardieu attempts to alleviate wife Carole Laure’s depression, even if it means opening their marriage up to accommodate school teacher Dewaere—but as it turns out, it’s bullied teenager Riton who proves to be her true object of desire. With Michel Serrault (La Cage aux Folles) as a concerned neighbor.

The restoration of Get Out Your Handkerchiefs opens at NYC’s Quad Cinema on March 15.
