"Des Miroirs et des Masques" (Mirrors and Masks), the latest film cycle at Metropolis Cinema-Sofil, is a retrospective of works by French filmmaker Claude Chabrol. The 11-film program opens Sunday. Like his contemporary Jean-Luc Godard, Chabrol (1930-2010) is a legendary figure in the filmmaking history of his country and the world. A pioneer of the France's "Nouvelle Vague" (The New Wave), Chabrol made films that challenged his audiences to tease some form of truth from the conflict between conventional thinking and the immense changes sweeping across the face of the 20th century. Chabrol was among those who brought New Wave style to genre film.As Alfred Hitchcock was once the monument of British film, Chabrol epitomizes French cinema. His films portray a France whose face is provincial, bourgeois and somewhat arrogant, but with something darker percolating beneath.
