La traversée de Paris” directed by Claude Antant-Lara, 1956 and starring Bourvil and Jean Gabin :

What did you come on earth, have you not shame to exist? Awful, i ignore you, i wipe you from my memory, i sweep you.

If i was polite, i would say “i like your wife”, but i am not polite then, i say to you “i don’t like her”.

I haven’t washed myself Madam, since France was defeated. And if nobody washed, France would be cleaner!
