The Colour of Lies

Sunday 24th February 5:30 PM


Nouvelle vague veteran Claude Chabrol depicts an isolated society rife with rumour and suspicion in a small Breton fishing village. Less a whodunnit than an investigation into the psychology and moral flaws of the chief protagonists (excellent acting - surprisingly? - from de Caunes) a girl's murder takes us to the heart of untruthfulness.

Nominated Golden Bear, Berlin 1999


“A gentle but powerful psychological thriller... a work of superior acting and quiet strength”

Michael Thompson, BBC Online.
