In LES COUSINS, Claude Chabrol (LES BONNES FEMMES) crafts a sly moral fable about a provincial boy who comes to live with his sophisticated bohemian cousin in Paris. Through these seeming opposites, Chabrol conjures a piercing, darkly comic character study that questions notions of good and evil, love and jealousy, and success in the modern world. A mirror image of LE BEAU SERGE, Chabrols debut, LES COUSINS recasts that films stars, Jean-Claude Brialy and Girard Blain, in startlingly reversed roles. This dagger-sharp drama won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and was an important precursor to the French New Wave.
