Plot Synopsis:

'Chicken With Vinegar' - Stéphane Audran plays a cruel, wheelchair-bound invalid who bullies her teenaged son Louis (Lucas Belvaux) into abject obedience. The pair is threatened by a conniving trio of "upright citizens" that want to buy her property as part of a deal for a lucrative development project. However, the two eccentrics, who are given to reading everyone's mail before it is delivered, won't sell. With townsfolk dropping off left and right in a series of gruesome murders, it requires the deceptively charming Inspector Lavardin (Jean Poiret) to get to the bottom of it all.

'Inspector Lavardin' - Jean Poiret returns as the remarkably urbane detective from 'Cop Au Vin.' This time he arrives at a cozy, seaside village to investigate the bizarre murder of a eminent Catholic author. A "pillar" of society, the writer is found dead by the shore, the word 'pig' scrawled across his naked body with lipstick and a huge stab wound in his back. The usually cool sleuth is shaken when he discovers that the victim's window is none other than his old flame. Stylish and charming, with lighthearted jabs at bourgeois conventions, 'Inspecteur Lavardin' is a first-rate thriller from master film-maker Claude Chabrol.
