"'Que la bete meure' seems to diverge from Chabrol's characteristic methods in some ways. it begins with a death, as well as inexorably leading up to one. It does not directly concern the murderousness of bourgeois marriage, although it deals with that too. Most radically, we gain access to the main character's emotions and motivations, revealed through diary entries - usually Chabrol's characters reveal themselves through action or reaction, and then, motives are often obscure."

Comments
For a non-anamorphic transfer it got pretty good transfer.  I think it was transferred from PAL source because the image sometimes is blurred.  All the extras are the same as Nada disc - filmographies from IMDB, short gallery and French trailer.
