One of the fathers of the French New Wave and a frequent contributor to the Cahiers du cinéma has died. Monsieur Charbol was 80 years old. His films include Bellamy, Les Cousins, and La Femme infidéle, which was remade in the US as Unfaithful. He joins Eric Rohmer, who died earlier this year, into the eternal stars. Rest in Peace, Claude.

Happy Filmmaking.
