M le maudit
Directed by Claude Chabrol • 1982 • France
For the television program “Ciné parade” in 1982, Claude Chabrol was asked to inaugurate a series of contemporary homages to classic cinema. Chabrol—himself often a director of tense psychosexual dramas—chose the ur-thriller M. In this short, a sort of M in ten minutes, Maurice Risch plays Peter Lorre playing Hans Beckert.
