    GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE

    Joann Sfar France, 2010

    This innovative biopic-come-musical of the life of enfant terrible Serge Gainsbourg simply shimmers with creativity. Directed by French comic book artist Joann Sfar, and starring Laetitia Casta and Claude Chabrol (!), the film alternates joyfully between live-action and poetic, surreal animation.

    THE SIGN OF LEO

    Éric Rohmer France, 1959

    Rohmer’s debut feature lucidly conjures Parisian ’50s bohemia, uncovering the trials that buffet an artist in the face of an often-cruel world. Produced by Chabrol (and with a cheeky cameo from Godard!), this New Wave drama may not have been a commercial success yet it won the hearts of cinephiles.

    THE KREUTZER SONATA

    Éric Rohmer France, 1956

    Produced by Jean-Luc Godard, who also plays a supporting role, this 16mm short by French master Éric Rohmer jumps between the interiors of Paris’ 1950s apartments—with a glimpse of the Cahiers du Cinéma offices!—and its charming boulevards. Featuring cameos by Claude Chabrol and François Truffaut.

    THE THIRD LOVER

    Claude Chabrol France, 1962

    Claude Chabrol’s overlooked early film exemplifies the director’s soon-to-be signature disdain for bourgeois values. Ruthlessly toying with marital sanctity, this cruel examination of the basest human instincts also hints at the instability of the French national identity in the aftermath of WWII.

    BLUEBEARD

    Claude Chabrol France, 1963

    France, WWI. Landru, the father of four Children, contacts Parisian women through newspapers, seduces and eventually kills them in order to feed his little family.
