"Morally offensive. A portrait of human depravity." -The Catholic Bishops Board of Review
Joey is a struggling writer with no money. His roommate Carl is a womanizer with a taste for young girls. Together, these insatiable dreamers will laugh, love and screw their way through a decadent Paris paved with wanton women, wild orgies and outrageous erotic adventures. Based upon the long-banned novel by Henry Miller, Quiet Days in Clichy is considered to be the most daring film adaptation ever of one of the most controversial authors in history.
In May of 1970, the United States Government seized the only English-language prints of Quiet Days in Clichy on charges of obscenity. And while it was ultimately cleared in Federal Court, the film mysteriously disappeared shortly after its release. Now more than 30 years later, this landmark 'adults only' classic can again be seen completely uncut and uncensored and featuring the original hit soundtrack by rock legend Country Joe McDonald.
