Editorial Reviews

Claude Chabrol (June 24, 1930 - September 12, 2010), with Truffaut, Godard, Rhomer and Rivette, The French New Wave revolutionized the way we see movies today. In this engrossing documentary, shot at a birthday celebration towards the end of his life, we go deep into the mind of Chabrol, the legendary director many call the French Hitchcock and the Balzac of Cinema. The director of classics such as Le Boucher, This Man Must Die and La Rupture. Like his films, Chabrol discusses his work amongst delicious meals with family, friends, ex-wives and actors. Chabrol also speaks to us one-on-one, directly dissecting both his choices and mistakes and what he has learned in his illustrious career. Since 1958, he made almost a film a year. His work constantly influenced cinema, including a Hollywood remake (Unfaithful). This film is the last word of Chabrol, his final stamp in his unmatched cinematic oeuvre.

[THE LIFE AND WORK OF CLAUDE CHABROL - (2006) - Documentary directed by Oliver Bourbeillon - 62 Minutes] Filmed at the 74th birthday bash thrown for cinema master director Claude Chabrol, this documentary is a heartwarming look at the man who directed almost one film a year for the last 50 years or so. The charming nature of this documentary is that we feel as though we were present at the party (what do you mean you didn't bring a gift? What were you thinking?), an intimate gathering of friends, children, ex-wives and actors who worked repeatedly with Chabrol, and who obviously loved, admired and respected this man who was larger than life as well as the grand films he prolifically produced. As an insiders view of the man who was all too constantly compared to the great Hitchcock (as tedious as this gets), we are privileged to hear the musings of an artist who, along with Goddard, Truffaut, Rhomer and Rivette, revolutionized and revitalized French cinema forever, having the most abundant harvest of all.

Present at this festive celebration were ex-wife and frequent muse Stephane Audran, actors Michel Bouquet, Sandrine Bonnaire (who's near tears at one point during one of the toasts), Suzanne Flon, Jacques Gamblin, son Thomas Chabrol, Gwenhael de Guevello, Bernadette Lafont, Benoit Magimel, Cecil Maistre, and a few others. They eat and drink like royalty (quite fitting indeed) while the host hams it up, exchange jokes and stories, reflections of working with Chabrol, read a wonderful poem penned by son Thomas and Jacques Gamblin, open gifts and, as end credits roll, facetiously implore Chabrol to stop his boisterous singing.
