Our take

Under a veneer of assured control comes the manipulative viciousness of the bourgeoisie in Les Biches, one of Claude Chabrol’s best-known films. Biting and subversive, this poisonous menage à trois starring Stéphane Audran and Jean-Louis Trintignant is a psychological drama filled with cruel desire.
