So much for the classiness of a bygone era. "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin and director Michel Hazanavicus are back together next year in the omnibus sex-com "The Players" (or "Les infidèles") and just as their silent movie was of a certain time and place, so too is this film.

So much for the classiness of a bygone era. "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin and director Michel Hazanavicus are back together next year in the omnibus sex-com "The Players" (or "Les infidèles") and just as their silent movie was of a certain time and place, so too is this film.

The French film is very much in the current vein of contemporary relationship/sex comedies, and is going to be just as crude and outrageous as anything cooked up by Judd Apatow if these two clips are anything to go by. The omnibus comedy -- described as a mix of "Viva Italia!," "The Hangover," "Desperate Housewives" and "Sex And The City" -- was penned by Dujardin along with Gilles Lellouche (both pictured above) and will present seven sketches, each helmed by a different director, riffing on the theme of infidelity. The directors getting behind the camera are Hazanavicius, Dujardin, Lellouche, Fred Cavaye ("Pour Elle," "Point Blank"), Jan Kounen ("Dobermann," "Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky"), Emmanuelle Bercot and Eric Lartigau. Dujardin, Lellouche, Alexandre Lamy, Melanie Doutey, Guillaume Canet, Sandrine Kiberlain and Isabelle Nanty will star in the picture as well.

It's pretty broad stuff, and while these clips are in French only, you'll get the gist of what's going on pretty quickly even without subtitles. The first clip is NSFW so if you're at the office you might just want to watch the second one for now. The film opens in France on February 29, 2012. No word yet on stateside release. [via Twitch]
