LIBERATION, 13/09/10

After my Isabelle Huppert post yesterday, a lot of talk went around on Facebook about her work with Claude Chabrol. “La Ceremonie” (1995) is my favorite collaboration between the two, so I decided to offer you a re-look at the day of Chabrol’s death, 12th September 2010.
The following day, French left-wing magazine LIBERATION announced & rightfully so: “La France perd son miroir”( France has lost its mirror), the director who insightful albeit tough comments about abortion rules, the idleness of the bourgeoisie, exploitation at work and the gratuity of violence. Here’s the cover from the fateful day and the link to the aforementioned article with the director’s filmography.
