Claude Chabrol, maître de suspense


A retired police detective and his wife are on their annual vacation in southern France, but his good-for-nothing half-brother interrupts the couple’s idyllic retreat. Meanwhile, despite protests from his wife, the ex-detective casually drifts into the investigation of a local murder case.

Our take

Today we begin a 5-film, 3-decade survey of the French New Wave’s master of suspense, Claude Chabrol. In a gesture towards his delightful perversity, we begin at the end with Chabrol’s final film: His only movie with Gérard Depardieu, it proves there’s always more to a mystery than meets the eye.
