CHICKEN WITH VINEGAR
POULET AU VINAIGRE
1985, Cohen Film, 110 min, France, Dir: Claude Chabrol

Unorthodox detective Jean Lavardin (Jean Poiret) is called to a provincial French town after a prank turns deadly in this underrated mystery flecked with sly humor. In French with English subtitles.


THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE
1972, Rialto Pictures, 102 min, France, Dir: Luis Buñuel

This later Luis Buñuel masterpiece and 1973 Best Foreign-Language Oscar winner is a return to the subversive director’s Surrealist roots and a showcase for his scrumptiously satirical wit. A sextet of upper-class friends (including Fernando Rey, Stéphane Audran, Delphine Seyrig and Jean-Pierre Cassel) attempt to dine together but are continually stalled by a streaming series of vaudevillian events, both real and dreamed. In French and Spanish with English subtitles.
