Jean Renoir an artist whose canvas was film [video]
This program documents the achievements of director and screenwriter Jean Renoir, one of the first great auteurs, whose distinctive style always contained a concern for human issues and a reverence for natural beauty. Film clips and an analysis of The Rules of the Game underscore the sense of visual realism and the poetic representation of the physical environment that lie at the core of his artistic vision.

"Audiences on the Verge of a Fascist Breakdown: Male Anxieties and Late 1930s French Film." Cinema Journal, vol. 36 no. 3. 1997 Spring. pp: 25-55.
" The writer examines the various receptions of the French films Quai des brumes, by Marcel Carne, règle du jeu, by Jean Renoir, and Katia, by Maurice Tourneur, to clarify the role played by film for viewers during the 18 months prior to mobilization for World War II. He examines evidence--including reviews, anecdotal recollections, fan letters, and censorship rulings--on how spectators responded to these movies. He notes that audiences responded enthusiastically to those films, which spoke to deep anxieties in a prewar France obsessed with the issue of male weakness: Traditional gender tension were pushed to crisis by the intolerable psychological situation created by the collapse of the Popular Front government and by the failure of coalition democracy to provide an adequate response to German militarism and fascism."

Commissioned by the American Office of War Information in both English- and French-language versions, A Salute to France/Salut à la France (1944) are traditionally considered minor works of tangential importance to Renoir's career. Yet a close reading of the films' form and ideological content in relation to the director's wartime correspondence suggests that they deserve to be remembered for their clever blend of acted sequences with newsreel clips, as a turning point in the cross-cultural identity crisis that Renoir worked through while in Hollywood, and as a quintessential expression of his politically engaged, international humanism.

"As an homage to the director on the 102nd anniversary of his birth and as testament to the enduring vitality of his work, the writer presents some intriguing sections of an interview with Jean Renoir that was conducted in 1970. The interview was originally carried out in an attempt to isolate some of the more elusive facts about his life and career and to glean Renoir's own sense of the continuity of his films and preoccupations. Among the topics covered are his feelings about his father's paintings, some of the qualities of his own filmmaking, the significance of heroes, and his admiration for the films of Orson Welles and Stroheim."

"Most of Jean Renoir's films are about putting a face on first love, but his love stories rarely end happily and without duplicity. Renoir's filmmaking father was Charles Chaplin, whose movies also dealt with first love, purity, duplicity, innocence, and corruption. King Vidor, the filmmaker Renoir most resembles, was also a disciple of Chaplin. All three men joined "home-movie" realism with theatrical melodrama, natural locations with painterly composition, and documentary with star attraction. Several of Renoir's films, including Une Partie de campagne (1936), La Marseillaise (1938), La Chienne (1931), and Boudu sauve des eaux (1932), are discussed." [ArtAbstracts]

In this film, which has a powerful force of theatricality that is absolutely fascinating, Renoir achieved a perfect balance between the omnipresence of a single message--the world is a stage where everyone acts badly--and the infinite variety of its presentation."

Ravier discusses the unique historical context of the film and theorizes on some of the key themes of the film, such as the role the body or the predominance of sound over sight (this is tied to what he calls "verbal cinema")."

"Jean Renoir's La règle du jeu evokes such a strenuously codified world that its extraordinary qualities are not universally apparent on first viewing. This film is the fitting climax of Renoir's extraordinary enterprise of social dissection, which he carried out during the 1930s. It is rivaled only by Citizen Kane in its reputation as a classic of world cinema." [ArtAbstracts]
