Le Boucher (1970)

Directed by
Claude Chabrol

Often described as Chabrol's masterpiece, this study of a psychopathic personality set in a picturesque Perigord town begins with the return of the local butcher's son from a 15-year stint in the army. When a girl is found stabbed in a nearby village, police investigations lead nowhere and life is barely disrupted. But then another body is found and a schoolteacher becomes suspicious.
