Critics reviews

Blood Relatives suffers from having the French-speakers among its bilingual cast, including Chabrol’s collaborator and wife, Stéphane Audran, poorly dubbed into English. The film does, though, come at the end of the peak period of collaboration between Chabrol and cinematographer Jean Rabier, so if the dialogue sometimes falters the film never lacks for visual elegance, particularly in an extended flashback narrated from the victim’s diary, all confectionary pastels laced with strychnine.
