Entre otras cualidades, "Le samouraï" es un poema desgarrador del hombre solo. Es también, y ante todo, una película policiaca.

Se organiza entonces una implacable caza, todos contra un solo hombre. El héroe irrisorio de este combate nocturno triunfará. En la muerte, claro está. Una muerte deseada, organizada, como una apoteosis

Les cousins( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
