More Movies You Never Heard Of! continues at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing Michel Deville's 1980 film "Voyage en Douce."

Two frenchwomen (Sanda and Chaplin) go for a weekend outing and share stories about their past sexual escapades. The film is most notable for its episodic flashback structure, derived from 15 different anecdotes by 15 different writers. With films like Le Lectrice (starring Miou-Miou), Deville found great critical and box-office success in his homeland but he was never to achieve the international notoriety of contemporaries like Godard or Truffaut.
