Celebrated member of the 1950s and 60s French New Wave, alongside filmmakers Truffaut, Rohmer, Godard, Demy, Varda, Bazin and Rivette, prolific auteur Claude Chabrol not only produced a highly regarded body of work but established the classic cinematic sobriquet as the ‘French Hitchcock’.
Inspired by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, Chabrol’s genre of choice was thriller and his distanced objectivity helped him create some of the most intense and chilling films in French history.
The Chabrol Collection - Volume 2 delves deep into the darker recesses of psychological horror and suspense, showcasing four of Chabrol's classic films: Innocents with Dirty Hands (Les Innocents aux Mains Sales) (1975) - a wife's sinister plot to get rid of her alcoholic husband once and for all..The Breach (La Rupture) (1970) - a child custody suit with suspicious leanings. Just Before Nightfall (Juste Avant La Nuit) (1971) - a kinky S&M tryst gone horribly awry.Wedding in Blood (Les Noces Rouges) (1973) - a mayor, his mistress and the growing suspicion behind his wife's apparent suicide.
Also included is The Life and Work of Claude Chabrol (Grand manège)(2006, 52 minutes) A thoroughly researched documentary on Chabrol, exploring the creative process and the great artistic passions of one of the masters of cinema.
