The Butcher (French: Le Boucher) is a 1970 French drama / thriller film written and directed by Claude Chabrol.


Plot Synopsis

Helene is a confident, slightly naive young teacher who is adored by her pupils at the school where she works and lives. She meets the local butcher, Popaul, at a wedding ceremony, and they strike up a close but platonic relationship. The film examines how Helene handles her suspicion of Popaul as a series of women in the small town fall victim to an unknown murderer.
