Le Boucher (15)

Director Claude Chabrol. 1970 French Drama/Thriller

At a wedding in a quiet rural French village, school headmistress Helene meets local butcher Popaul. Though the reserved Helene is still traumatized by the failure of a past relationship, Popaul's boyish charm draws her out of her shell. But shortly after their relationship begins, a string of murders surrounds the village, and, when Helene recognizes an item she had given Popaul near one of the crime scenes, she begins to suspect he may be the murderer.
