Synopsis:
The 50th film from legendary French New Wave writer and director Claude Chabrol is a typically Hitchcockian comic thriller about a pair of con artists embroiled in a dizzying array of double-crosses. Up until now, Betty (Isabelle Huppert) and Victor (Michel Serrault) have contented themselves with scamming small fry hotel conventions. The ever flirtatious Betty, however, has bigger plans. One in particular involves a briefcase containing five million Swiss francs of syndicate money. Before long Victor becomes suspicious of Betty's solo pursuits.
Is his once-loyal partner betraying him? And what of Maurice, the owner of the briefcase, and his gangster bosses? Chabrol directs this sleek, shadowy caper with wit and masterful restraint.

First class in every respect - The Swindle review by BL

Spoiler Alert

A brilliant tour de force in terms of both acting and direction. Huppert is as always superb and supremely watchable and Chabrol is at the top of his form. I would be glad to view it again and again
