Le Boucher - cinema review
directed by Claude Chabrol, starring Stéphane Audran, Jean Yanne, Antonio Passalia
colour, 95', 35mm, Italian dubbed version
In a small French town a teacher and a butcher fall in love. The romance is broken when an investigation into a number of ferocious killings seems to incriminate the butcher. One of director Chabrol's most Hitchcockian thrillers, the film manages to be "controlled without being elusive, clear without being superficial, transparent without being cold. A distressing film that is also an aching love story" (Morandini).
