World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: JEAN RENOIR

Jean Renoir's gently humanistic films were sorely underestimated when they first came out. They were unconventional, complex, and so energetic and technically daring that few noticed their intricate structure. The films were often dismissed as rough, and not fully achieved artistically. However, the generation that came to the cinema in the '60s and '70s (perhaps the richest and most diverse era in European cinema) recognized Renoir as an ancestor who had already made the kind of films they admired or were setting out to make themselves, and justly hailed them as masterpieces.
