QUIET DAYS IN CLICHY

Synopsis

rong> master Henry Miller's Quiet Days In Clichy, the notorious tale of two young men who set out to conquer Paris, the last frontier for the oversexed American hero, was adapted for the screen in 1970 and disappeared under a controversial cloud of censorship for over 30 years. 

Considered to be one of the most daring film adaptations in history, released two years prior to Bertolucci's scintillating Last Tango In Paris,  it details the hedonistic pursuits of Joey (Paul Valjean), a struggling writer and his lustful roommate Carl (Wayne Rodda) as they venture forth and sample the many tempting Parisian delights on offer. With the allure of Carl's charming ways and his irrepressible taste for young and innocent women, the men partake in decadent orgies, fulfilling a farrago of fantasies, culminating in a carnal competition of the highest order. 
A candid and controversial presentation in stark black and white, Quiet Days In Clichy also features an original soundtrack by renowned musician Country Joe McDonald.
