    A Booklet Featuring An Essay By Film Critic Terrence Rafferty And Excerpts From Actor Jean-Claude Brialy's Memoir, About Costar Gerard Blain
In Les Cousins, Claude Chabrol (Les Bonnes Femmes) 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 piercing, 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, Chabrol's debut, Les cousins recasts that film's stars, Jean-Claude Brialy and Gérard Blain, in startlingly reversed roles. This dagger-sharp drama won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and was an important precursor to the French New Wave.
