Editorial Reviews

In Les cousins, Claude Chabrol (Les bonnes femmes) crafts a sly moral fable about a provincial boy who comes to live with his sophisticated bohemian cousin in Paris. Through these seeming opposites, Chabrol conjures a piercing, darkly comic character study that questions notions of good and evil, love and jealousy, and success in the modern world. A mirror image of Le beau Serge, Chabrol’s debut, Les cousins recasts that film’s stars, Jean-Claude Brialy and Gérard Blain, in startlingly reversed roles. This dagger-sharp drama won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and was an important precursor to the French New Wave.

I found this Claude Chabrol film to be a bit boring and stuck. Perhaps in 1959 he was still finding his legs as I really enjoy his later work. Criterion does a decent job on the Blu-ray transfer, but I can't help wonder why "Les Cousins" couldn't have simply been added to "Le Beau Serge" as an early works collection rather than a stand alone film. French New Wave fanatics are the target for this film and as a study to see how the director developed his skills for later classic cinema. I'm a bit surprised that I'm the first to review this Criterion edition as it's nearly four years since it's release, surely that speaks for itself. Watch before you buy this one!!!
