Spring 2004, in the garden of the family house, Thomas Chabrol lays the table for his father’s 74th birthday. Around the table, great actors from Chabrol’s films, his wife, Stephane Audran, and his friends...
52 minutes will be just enough to celebrate the master of cinema and to discover what Chabrol was chasing.
Please note that contrary to what has initially been announced, the film is in French with NO SUBTITLES. We apology for the inconvenience.

As depicted in Bourbeillon’s documentary, Chabrol was a Bon Vivant, a real lover of crowded dinner tables, never ending meals and excellent food. We pay a tribute to his hedonism and celebrate the end of the retrospective week with a ’buffet campagnard’ - delicious French countryside finger food and wine, following the screening.
