1939. France. Dir: Jean Renoir. With Nora Gregor, Marcel Dalio. 110 min.
When bourgeois Parisians converge on a country estate for a weekend retreat, a nobleman’s petty scheme to lose his mistress becomes twisted up among various jealousies, affairs, and murder. Renoir’s dark, meticulously shot satire of the hypocrisies and disregard of French high society has long been placed among the greatest films of all time.
