7 / 10 (210)


In a small town, the deputy mayor, Pierre is having a passionate extra-marital affair with the mayor’s wife, Lucienne. For a time, the lovers are able to carry on their affair undetected, but then the mayor discovers his wife’s infidelity, he blackmails Pierre, and the couple plan their revenge.

MUBI's take

An extra-marital affair between Stéphane Audran and Michel Piccoli come against the scheming conservatism of a countryside mansion in Claude Chabrol’s drama. The French New Wave director’s brazen knack for satirizing bourgeois life is delightful for its mocking and bold effrontery.
