La cérémonie by Claude Chabrol ( France, 1995, 112 min.)

With Charles Coleman, Facets Film Program Director —In French with English subtitles.

The French have a name for the events leading up to a death by guillotine, known as "the ceremony." The same sense of foreboding infuses a film where Chabrol, a core director of the Nouvelle Vague, is at his best.

“France's master of suspense, Claude Chabrol, relishes every malevolent, icily controlled shot of this perfectly constructed thriller, right up to its terrifying, violent climax.” –The Guardian
