  1. redux's rating of the film Les cousins

    Urban twin-piece to 'Le beau Serge', featuring the same two leads in reversed moral positions. References to Balzac and Dostoevsky cover for a more melodramatic narrative, while many of the individual scenes feel like prescient studies for Fellini's 'La dolce vita'.

  2. Juan Javier's rating of the film Les cousins

  3. captainfez's rating of the film Les cousins

    Elegant, But A Dick: A Movie About Apartment-Sharing.

  4. bartkl's rating of the film Les cousins

    Such a tragic phenomenon in life: work hard and ... lose to the romantic aristocrat. Furthermore the path to love, for some, is paved with carnal desires. A classic tale told beautifully, with all-round great directing and production. This is one of my favorite French New Wave films.

  5. azoulay's rating of the film Les cousins

    L'année après le Beau Serge,Les Cousins c'est moins bien. Le miracle fonctionne moins bien Chabrol se laisse un peu aller à la facilité, comme souvent dans son oeuvre les acteurs sont moins ou plutôt trop et il manque Bernadette ! l'histoire est très tirée par les cheveux Brialy cabotine et le beau Blain fait du pathos tout ça avec beaucoup de talent quand même. La fin est très "chabrolesque" comme on aime.

  6. Paul Rot's rating of the film Les cousins

    So disappointing... after LE BEAU SERGE...

  7. Ma-rewind's rating of the film Les cousins

  8. Didonne's rating of the film Les cousins

    Vraiment excellent. Jeux d'acteurs et traitement de l'image exceptionnels. Les quinze dernières minutes sont médusantes. Du grand art !

  9. AVA's rating of the film Les cousins

    Tiefe Moral,erstklassig inszeniert.

  10. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Les cousins

    Convincing camera, good b/w photography ... and a very interesting use of Wagner's music during three scenes.

  11. FISCHER's rating of the film Les cousins

    Une époque de la filmographie de Claude Chabrol, qu'on adore ! www.cinefiches.com

  12. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Les cousins

    A nice companion piece to Chabrol's Le Beau Serge!

  13. James Mackin's rating of the film Les cousins

    I feel like Chabrol is a really overlooked part of the FNW, and this film, while not phenomenal, probably doesn't deserve to be overlooked as much as it is.

  14. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Les cousins

    The ironies are labored, but then so are the cousins in their calcified identities.

  16. Willy Rolle's rating of the film Les cousins

  17. 1ariane1's rating of the film Les cousins

    Jean-Claude Brialy en beau gosse, the fifties going on the sixties... Dolce Vita, Signe du Lion, un monde révolu et finalement assez oublié. On a du mal a imaginer le saut sociétal vers les seventies. Ces films sont désormais des documentaires, comme les mélodrames de Balzac le sont pour nous.

  18. SpacePirate's rating of the film Les cousins

    This one had me sucked in within minutes. Can't believe I had overlooked this one until a recent TCM broadcast.

  19. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Les cousins

    In a nut shell, the scene between our perpetually perturbed provincial protagonist and the bookseller who gives him encouraging advice: "Ah, heartbreak ...go hit those books." Camera then focuses on a rotating display of books in the window, THE INSULT, THE LADY LIES, THE AGONY OF LOVE, MY MOTHER'S CASTLE, all with a birds-chirping-over-your-head score. Sadly, I identify more with the guy who jumped out the window.

  21. janh24's rating of the film Les cousins

    Too cynical for its own good; but still, an intriguing film.

  22. raggiodisole's rating of the film Les cousins

    a tongue swirling around the cheek as the harsh truths of life are played out in bohemian Paris as another ingenue is drawn in then spat out

  23. TheGaijinRoaming's rating of the film Les cousins

    Beautifully terrible. Watch it and you'll know what I mean. The lighting is superb. The sense of claustrophobia that builds in the, at first, stylish apartment is tangible. The tragic twist not a complete surprise but the whole film perfectly crafted towards it! There's plenty more to be discussed, but see it for yourselves first!

  24. dmol's rating of the film Les cousins

    J'adore!.. Chabrol has a very unique way of uniting the seemingly superfluous with the more grim truths of life.
