"Nada", directed Claude Chabrol

Thriller, 1974

Political kidnap thriller in which the politics are never really made explicit and are pushed out in favour of some fairly poorly realised relationships, particularly those involving the aging Epaulard. There’s lots of gloomy drinking in gloomy flats with gloomy furniture and unfinished baguettes. There are also lightly scathing views of people all round – while the police are clearly reprehensible, the Nada Gang aren’t much better. Not a great film, all in all, though quite engaging.
