"An exquisite slice of crime."—Film Comment

Two of the giants of French cinema, Claude Chabrol and Gérard Depardieu, team up for the only time for the director's fifty and final feature film, a wry thriller about a police commissioner trying to balance professional instinct with family duty. Once again, Paul Bellamy (Depardieu) and his wife are spending their vacation at her family home in a quiet town. But just as they're settling into their reassuringly predictable holiday routine, his perennially troubled younger brother shows up, joined by a mysterious stranger seeking Bellamy's protection.

Claude Chabrol was the most prolific and overlooked of the French New Wave filmmakers, and he continued to work in fine form right up to the end. Chabrol's death on September 12, 2010, was one of the film community's greatest losses of 2010. Inspector Bellamy offers one last diabolically smart and satisfying crime drama from one of the masters of the form. (110 mins., 35mm)
