Les cousins by Claude Chabrol( visu )
3 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in French and English and held by 340 libraries worldwide
Simple, good-hearted country cousin Charles comes to study at the Sorbonne in Paris where he stays at the luxury apartment of Paul, his cynical city cousin. Charles works hard but fails his exams, Paul doesn't but passes and gets Charles's girl. Chabrol's second feature film re-unites Jean-Claude Brialy and Gerard Blain, the two lead actors from his debut feature, 'Le Beau Serge'. Paul (Brialy) is a hedonistic and confident Parisian student living in his uncle's fashionable inner city flat. He spends his time drinking, carousing, sleeping with a variety of female friends and playing the role of matchmaker for his friends, arranging trysts in an ongoing merry go round of bed partners. He is an emotionally remote and decadent man, adhering to a dubious moral code, who approaches his friends love lives with devilish detachment. Charles (Blain) is his naive country cousin, a dedicated student, who stays with Paul whilst studying for his law exams. When Charles is introduced to Paul's swinging set, he instantaneously falls for Florence, a beautiful woman who is intrigued by Charles' innocence. Paul is perturbed as he observes the attraction between the two and the respect that Charles displays for Florence. A clash is inevitable as the rivalry for Florences affection grows. The contrast between the two main characters morality is acute, especially in their attitudes toward women. A dramatic study of class conflict and personal responsibility 'Les Cousins' is a riveting and perverse study of decadent Parisian student life. The City of Lights is captured by Decae's camera as if seen through the amazed eyes of Charles. The film won the Best Film award at the Berlin Film Festival in 1959. Also available on 16mm

L'exploitation antique de la pierre de taille dans le bassin de la Charente by Jacques Gaillard( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The ancient exploitation of hewn stone in the Charente basin provided a beautiful white stone from the limestone outcrops which was used in architecture and for sculpturing. This study explores the process of manipulating the stone: extraction, hewing, turning, boarding and transport. The archaeological approach consists in precision srutiny of all traces left by early quarrymen, on the bottom surface and all worked faces of the quarry. It then proposes grids for reading and analyses which are applicable to the whole area. Being closely linked to construction sites, the quarry is of major interest to archaeological research dealing with built structures. Apart from examining the different techniques, this research also explores the quarry as a space for living. Taking into account the excavations of the Île Sèche quarry at Thénac (Charente-Maritime), it proposes a study of the population who lived in quarries, either temporarily or permanently: living quarters, the every day life of quarrymen, the rôle of the blacksmith, etc. Alongside the historical and archaeological aspect of study, a research was carried out from the geological point of view in order to specify Saintonge limestones according to its origin and to compare it with samples taken on the antique monuments. Stone of Thénac and Crazannes quarries has been used as the basis for an identification code which could be extended to other Saintonge quarries. These references can now be considered as a means to determine the dispersion of Saintonge limestone and to have a better knowledge of the romanization

Ein Liebespaar, das seine störenden Ehepartner durch Morde aus dem Weg geschafft hat, bleibt zunächst auf höhere Weisung unbehelligt, bis die Tochter der Frau die Polizei zum Handeln zwingt. Deutlicher als in seinen früheren Filmen verknüpft Chabrol eine melodramatische Kriminalgeschichte aus dem Milieu des französischen Bürgertums mit konkreten politischen Anspielungen und scharfer Kritik an gaullistischen Rechtstendenzen. Die Premiere des Films fand aufgrund einer Intervention der Zensur und des Kulturministeriums erst nach den französischen Parlamentswahlen von 1973 statt
