"Claude Chabrol crafts a sly moral fable about a provincial boy who comes to live with his sophisticated bohemian cousin in Paris. Through these seeming opposites, Chabrol conjures a darkly comic character study that questions notions of good and evil, love and jealousy, and success in the modern world. A mirror image of Le beau Serge, Les cousins recasts that film's stars, Jean-Claude Brialy and Gérard Blain, in startlingly reversed roles"--Container

The prismatic portrait of the days and nights of a party girl in sixties Rome is a revelation. It follows the gorgeous, seemingly liberated Adriana as she dallies with a wide variety of men, attends parties, goes to modeling gigs, and circulates among the rich and famous. Despite its often light tone, though, the film is a stealth portrait of a suffocating culture that regularly dehumanizes people, especially women
Les cousins by Claude Chabrol( Visual )

30 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 212 WorldCat member 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
