  • Unusual Stories: Invitation to the Hunt

    1974. France. Directed by Claude Chabrol. Screenplay by Paul Gégauff. With Jean-Louis Maury, Margarethe von Trotta. Episode of the television miniseries Unusual Stories. Receiving an unexpected invitation to participate in the annual hunt party given by the local marquis, a common man deludes himself into thinking he's a valued member of society, gets in debt to live up to his own fantasies, puts on airs, and invents a perfectly untrue—but, to his mind, fitting—past for a man of his new station. Then the cruel game starts. French; English subtitles. 52 min.
