Part mock-neorealist homoerotic foxtrot, part obsessively symmetrical Cahiers du Cinéma analysis of Hitchcock's I Confess

It has a certain fascination as Chabrol's first practical (as opposed to critical) encounter with mise en scene.

It presents a bleak, beautifully observed picture of provincial life, later revisited to even more stunning effect in Le Boucher.

September 19, 2011
Le Beau Serge received overwhelming critical approval of its use of non-professional actors, raw black-and-white photography (masterfully executed by Henri Decae), and personal vision.
