THE RULES OF THE GAME
LA REGLE DU JEU
1939, Janus Films, 110 min, France, Dir: Jean Renoir

Considered one of the greatest films ever made, Jean Renoir's seminal upstairs-downstairs portrait is at once a lyrically light comedy of manners and a damning critique of French upper-crust society. A weekend hunting party at the sprawling country home of Marquis Robert de la Cheyniest (Marcel Dalio) proves disastrous as the party's invitees - and the manor's waitstaff - harbor secrets from each other, and engage in increasingly messy trysts and tête-à-têtes, set against the background of a lovelorn aviator's welcome-home celebration. In French with English subtitles.

THE RIVER
1951, Janus Films, 99 min, Dir: Jean Renoir

Based on the novel by Rumer Godden and directed, written and produced by Jean Renoir, this is a moving portrait of an English girl coming of age in Bengal. The film was nominated for two BAFTA awards and was the first film to be shot on location in India using three-strip Technicolor.
