Le Beau Serge is a French film directed by Claude Chabrol, released in 1958


Francois (Jean-Claude Brialy) returns to his village after a long absence. He finds his friend Serge (Gérard Blain) who has married Yvonne, and has developed an alcohol problem after the death of their stillborn child. Serge has become an angry, bitter James Dean-like person refusing to face reality and adulthood and Francois must help him.


  • Le Beau Serge is considered the first film of the French Nouvelle Vague.
