‘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.
