In one of Chabrol’s darkest dramas, Marie Trintignant gives an astonishing performance as Betty, a woman whose alcohol-soaked life has finally fallen to pieces. She is taken under the wing of an older woman (Stéphane Audran) with a similar background, but her benefactress’s sympathies may be misplaced.

A film by Claude Chabrol

Watching [Betty] the same week I saw two conventional Hollywood ‘thrillers’…was like being invited to participate with the depths of my mind, instead of just the shallow surface.”

Roger Ebert
