World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: RENÉ CLAIR

René Clair gained recognition as an artist long before screenwriters and directors were accorded serious critical attention, and in the Thirties he was more highly regarded than Jean Renoir. Clair has been called the most French of filmmakers; each of his films reflects his own sophisticated view of the world, creating a poetically comic universe which centers on Paris. Clair's penchant for invention, research, and experimentation allied him to the pioneers of the film art, for whom a motion picture was not merely a mode of expression but one of invention.
