Release: Jun 8, 1978
Claude Chabrol's Violette was based on the true story of a young teenager Violette Noziere, who in the 1930s was tried and convicted of the killing of her father and the attempted murder of her mother by poison. Violette is a thrill-seeking girl who falls for a no-good slug from the slums of Paris. Anxious to give money to her lover, Violette hatches the patricide scheme in order to inherit her father's fortune. But Violette's mother however, survives, and Violette is arrested and charged with murder. She defends herself by alleging that her father had molested her.It is her testimony that condemns Violette, first to the guillotine, then to a commuted life sentence.A story that both shocked yet fascinated the country, and the world. In emulation of his idol Alfred Hitchcock, director Chabrol manages to evoke a measure of sympathy and audience identification for his thoroughly dislikable leading character.
