Directed by Jean Renoir
With Marcel Dalio, Nora Gregor
Filmed by Jean Renoir as the storm clouds of war were hovering over Europe, this romantic rondelay set during a weekend hunting party is unparalleled in its emotionally and cinematically rich portrayal of romance and intrigue among a fading aristocracy. Filled with comedy and tragedy, the film is masterfully choreographed, yet it spills over with the vitality of life. Jean Renoir, the greatest of French directors, was the son of impressionist painter Auguste Renoir.
