Murder is a family affair. The Flower of Evil Trailer "Claude Chabrol is in top form. This is another gratifying gem from a master." - Kevin Thomas , The Los Angeles Times "Four Stars!" - Michael Wilmington , Chicago Tribune "A masterly work!" - Andrew Sarris , The New York Observer "Deliciously perverse" - Dave Kehr , The New York Times France's master of suspense, Claude Chabrol, is back with one of his most accomplished films yet. THE FLOWER OF EVIL tells the story of a seemingly perfect family, whose distinguished facade starts to crack when the wife ( Nathalie Baye ) ventures into local politics and the prodigal son ( Benoit Magimel ) returns from overseas. On the eve of the local election, a corpse appears, and the long dormant seeds of a past family crime begin to bloom. It's not long before three generations of scandel explode, burying the family under the weight of mysterious deaths, incest and patricide. Chabrol's merciless eye has never been so sharp and his gift for humor never so wicked. DVD BONUS FEATURES:
