CHABROL ADAPTS SIMENON AND OFFERS MARIE TRINTIGNANT HER MOST BEAUTIFUL ROLE
"Claude Chabrol taught me lightness, He taught me to grow without tragedy." MARIE TRINTIGNANT
Alreadyvery soaked, Betty finds herself in a bar called “Le Trou”. There, she is taken under the protection of a regular, Laure, also an alcoholic. His discussions with Laure lead him to dive back into his past. How could she allow herself to be chased away by her respectable husband and family and abandon her children to them? And now, how to go up the slope, how to get out of the "hole"?
“Betty is an interesting character because the human and the animal fight inside her. And the animal wins. She needs a man. On land, to win, you must join the dominant pack. Sexuality is one of the great mysteries of existence… If it matters to you, it is better to know it so as not to put yourself in desperate situations. […] Betty is a very strong woman. It is enough for her to have her head above water, to stop letting herself be carried away so that we can see what strength is in her. – Claude Chabrol
