"The Flower of Evil"
Directed by Claude Chabrol
Claude Chabrol, returns with another exploration of
the dark side of the French upperclass. After a brief stay in America,
Francois returns to Bordeaux to live with his family on their large estate,
where he quickly rekindles a romance with his step-sister, whose mother is
running for mayor. Their privileged life is soon disrupted when an anonymous
letter detailing the family's past indiscretions, including incest,
adultery, murder, and possible war crimes, is leaked to the press, dredging
up three generations of guilt that has haunted the bourgeois family. French
with English subtitles. 102 minutes.
