Product Notes

Of the hallowed group of Cahiers du cinima critics turned filmmakers who would transform French film history, Claude Chabrol (LES BONNES FEMMES) was the first to direct his own feature. His stark and absorbing landmark debut, LE BEAU SERGE, follows a successful yet sickly young man (A WOMAN IS a WOMAN Jean-Claude Brialy) who returns home to the small village where he grew up. There, he finds himself at odds with his former close friend (LES COUSINS'S Girard Blain) now unhappily married and a wretched alcoholic and the provincial life he represents. The remarkable and raw LE BEAU SERGE heralded the arrival of a cinematic titan who would go on to craft provocative, entertaining films for five more decades.
