Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LES COUSINS [THE COUSINS] (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
The 2nd Chabrol after his debut Le Beau Serge is a tale of 2 cousins who are the complete opposite of eachother. Again with Jean-Claude Brialy and Gérard Blain in the leading roles. The one cousin is a hard studying and shy guy who falls in love with the wrong woman and the other cousin is a bon vivant who throws parties at any given circumstance. You get a beautiful long car drive by shot in the streets of Paris ( which always gets my full attention ). The Eureka!/Masters of Cinema Blu-Ray re-release is stashed with lots of extra's and a beautiful booklet as usual. The purchase of this movie as well as Le Beau Serge is essential for any admiror of the French nouvelle vague. And yes the film and the characters are dated but hey what do you expect ? A Hollywood remake ?
