Too often overlooked and undervalued, Claude Chabrol was the first of the Cahiers du Cinema critics to release a feature film and would be among the most prolific. The sneaky anarchist of the French New Wave, he embraced genre as a means off lifting the lid on human nature. Nothing is sacred and nothing is certain in the films of Claude Chabrol. Anything can be corrupted, and usually will be. Arrow Video is proud to present Lies & deceit: Five Films by Claude Chabrol. Featuring Cop Au Vin (Poulet au vinaigre), Inspector Lavardin, Madame Bovary, Betty and Torment (L'enfer), this inaugural collection of Claude Chabrol on Blu-ray brings together a wealth of passionate contributors and archival extras to shed fresh light on the films and the filmmaker. Dark, witty, ruthless, mischievous: if you've never seen Chabrol before, you're in for a treat. If you have, they've never looked better.

Press Quotes

Chabrol, born in 1930, was like Godard and Truffaut a movie critic writing for Cahiers du Cinema, the voice of the auteur movement. He has outlasted many of his contemporaries and outproduced all of them

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Director Claude Chabrol, one of the most successful members of the French New Wave, is able to breathe life into suspense with subtlety, irony, and humour

     —Michael Thomson, BBC

Chabrol builds to a vice-grip tension

     —Sean Axmaker, Stream on Demand

Nothing is sacred and nothing is certain in the films of Claude Chabrol. Anything can be corrupted, and usually will be.

     —We Are Movie Geeks

[Chabrol's] later work - such as those collected in Arrow's new set Lies & Deceit: Five Films by Claude Chabrol - merit attention for his unique take on the flaws and (sometimes murderous) foibles of the bourgeois which lay hidden in plain sight.

     —Movie Line Online

A wealth of supplements. Highly recommended for all Francophiles and New Wave buffs

     —Andre Dursin, Andy Film

Claude Chabrol has been decently served by the high definition era. As tends to be the case, this Arrow release is stuffed to the gills with supplements

     —Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-ray.com

This inaugural collection of Claude Chabrol on Blu-ray brings together a wealth of passionate contributors and archival extras to shed fresh light on the films and the filmmaker. Dark, witty, ruthless, mischievous: if you've never seen Chabrol before, you're in for a treat. If you have, they've never looked better.

     —Anne Carlini, Exclusive Magazine

Chabrol made over 50 films some more successful than others. Lies And Deceit - Five Films by Claude Chabrol boxes together a quintet of his better movies from the 1980s and '90s.

     —Joe Corey, Inside Pulse

While not as widely celebrated as some of his fellow critics-turned-filmmakers, Chabrol had the ability to blend arthouse sensibilities with genre narratives, often compared to Alfred Hitchcock in his approach and preoccupation with thrillers. The Arrow Video release of Lies and Deceit contains five classics from the French New Wave filmmaker

     —Ryan Izay, Rizay Reviews

Director Claude Chabrol was always best when he made thrillers and/or murder mysteries that served as a thin veil for social commentary, pulling back the curtain to show the dark sides of bourgeoisie - and that's certainly true with Cop Au Vin, a film that works as both an unconventional murder mystery and bitter satire, carried by a witty script, a stylish yet subtle enough directorial effort, and a first rate cast. Strongly recommended.

     —Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash

From Cop Au Vin and Inspector Lavardin to Madame Bovary, Betty and Torment, this set has given me an incredible glimpse into the director and opened my mind up to seeing more of his films

     —Bands About Movies

Nothing is sacred and nothing is certain in the films of Claude Chabrol. Anything can be corrupted, and usually will be. Dark, witty, ruthless, mischievous: if you've never seen Chabrol before, you're in for a treat. If you have, they've never looked better.

     —Harley Lond, Film Crave

Unlike many of his French New Wave peers, Chabrol didn't have an issue making an entertaining film that wasn't completely obtuse. Lies And Deceit - Five Films by Claude Chabrol boxes together a quintet of his better movies from the 1980s and '90s.

     —Joe Corey, Inside Pulse

A really nice set form Arrow Video. Get it now!

     —Michael Vaughn, Geek Vibes Podcast

Admirers of Chabrol's works will enjoy this set and it covers the spectrum of human emotions that dominate his movies.

     —Ryan Izay, Rizay Reviews

This fine selection of Chabrols from the ten year period 1985-1994 begins with a pair of detective tales but moves on to a masterful adaptation of a great book and two engrossing experiments, one of them picking up where an earlier French master left off.

     —Glenn Erickson , Trailers From Hell

This new box set includes a quintet of titles from the latter half of his career, when his output had slowed considerably but his name still carried currency in his homeland and on the art-house circuit.

     —Matt Brunson, The Film Frenzy

a huge box set of the best Chabrol film in one collection.

     —Jason Lockard, Classic Cinema Magazine

Arrow Video's Lies and Deceit gathers together five of Chabrol's finest efforts from the 1980s and '90s: a linked pair of cop films, a lustrous adaptation of one of France's most beloved novels, a brooding character study of a despondent wife, and the portrait of a marriage undone by madness and jealousy.

     —Budd Wilkins, Slant Magazine

Lies and Deceit: Five Films by Claude Chabrol is an exceptional release from Arrow Video that comes with strong audio/video presentations for each film and a wealth of insightful extras about each film and Claude Chabrol, highly recommended.

     —Miachael Den Boer, 10K Bullets

All five films feature brand new digital restorations and are completely devoid of any perceptible defects.

     —Steve Geise, Cinema Sentries

Chabrol's endings are very satisfying. This is a nice looking set and the films look great.

     —Dave Parka, Screaming Toilet

The educational opportunity for something like this is off the charts

     —Heath Holland, Cereal At Midnight

This set is gorgeous.

     —Film Cultist

A great sampling of the filmmaker's work that shows his dexterity as a master of detective tales, literary period pieces, psychological character studies, and brutal examinations of the dark side of marriage

     —Jim Hemphill, Film Maker Magazine

All of these movies are yet to disappoint. They are ALL very good

     —Mr Parka

All of these movies are yet to disappoint. They are ALL very good

     —Screaming Toilet

There's not a single film here that isn't worthy of being added to the library of any serious film fan, and the wealth of bonus materials should serve to explain why.

     —Stephen Bjork, The Digital Bits

...a number of new extras add excellent context for the film and its inspiration.

     —Ryne Barber, Cultsploitation
