current retrospective gives us a chance to encounter seldom seen gems of the Nouvelle Vague, one of the most important movements in cinema history post World War II. One of it's influential directors is Claude Chabrol, whose second feature film "Les Cousins” is among the often overlooked birth hour of the New Wave – made before the quintessential “Les Quatre Cents Coups” by Truffaut and “À bout de souffle” by Godard. And even at this early stage of Chabrol’s career you’ll find all the features that made his later movies so iconic: The story is set in a bourgeois milieu, told in Chabrol's unique distanced manner. The main personell consists of ambiguous characters with urban vs. rural backgrounds, guilt is exchanged.

There’ll be an introduction beforehand, the film is in French with German subtitles. We’ll have drinks afterwards to share opinions.

Here’s the trailer: Protected content
