To celebrate the French Film Festival UK 2011 and the end of the Brittany-Scotland year, we invite you for a special restrospective of French director Claude Chabrol’s films.

‘Chabrol en Bretagne’ is a 3 films cycle focusing on Brittany, region that Chabrol was particularly inspired by and where he shot half a dozen of his films. Supplemented by an exclusive documentary where the master reveals some parts of his mystery, this retrospective is a tribute both to the director and to the gorgeous Breton landscapes.

Catherine, illiterate, lives in the fear of her secret being discovered. She makes friends with Jeanne a post woman with a shady past. When her boss’ daughter discovers she can not read, Jeanne’s hate for the upper-class people encourages them to murder the family. Jeanne thought she would again be able to get away with it, but things do not turn this way...

by Claude Chabrol (1994)
