Quiet Days in Clichy 1970
Quiet Days In Clichy, based on two of Henry Miller's more risque (and at one time, banned) works, is the story of Joey, a writer with no money and no real job prospects. Joey lives with Carl, his roommate, a bit of a sex maniac with a thing for younger women.

Once we’re introduced to the characters, Joey and Carl basically screw their way through a pre-WWII Paris and indulge in a whole lot of wanton sex with pretty much any woman willing. Alone, in groups, or whatever, they don't really seem to care – they’re just out to get as laid as they can as frequently as they can, and they’re pretty successful at it.
A number of different girls come in and out of their lives, though a few do manage to make a lasting impression, including Nys, with whom Joey falls in love; and Colette, a 15-year-old free spirit who, despite being underage, captures Carl’s heart.

Considered to be the most daring and honest film adaptation of any of Miller's works, Thorsen's 'Quiet Days In Clichy' is a provocative and graphic exploration of sexual liberation, inventively and innovatively directed on location in Paris. Highlighting the film's beautiful monochrome visuals (Paris has rarely been shot with such affection) is a soundtrack of suitably ribald songs by the legendary Country Joe McDonald.
