Claude Chabrol - 1930-2010

Film buffs around the world, particularly those fond of French cinema, will be snapping a baguette today, in honour of legendary French director Claude Chabrol, who passed away over the weekend. Chabrol was a contemporary of Jean-Luc Goddard and François Truffaut, who began the movement known as the French New Wave cinema in the 50’s,  and over his career made over 60 films and episodes for TV shows.Among thos films he directed were Cop au Vin, Madame Bovary, La Femme infidèle, The Flower Of Evil, and most recently Bellamy.

Fernby Films acknowledges the passing of one of France’s most acclaimed cimema icons, and we tip our beret in his memory. Chabrol died on September 12, aged 80.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney’s keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them.

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman.

As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney’s love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
