Les biches

Claude Chabrol's humor and irony aren't much in evidence in this 1968 work, his first “art film” after five years of genre work. The title (less racy in translation—“The Does”) refers to Stephane Audran and Jacqueline Sassard, two women living out an enigmatic relationship in the south of France. Sex enters with the appearance of Jean-Louis Trintignant, who can't decide which of the women he wants. Slow, silent, and rather arid, yet enlivened by Chabrol's stylistic precision and Jean Rabier's fading pastel photography.
