Jean Renoir in the Thirties
Part of Jean Renoir in the Thirties.
Date + TimeThursday, July 19, 2007
LocationPhyllis Wattis Theater
Une Partie de campagne (A Day in the Country), 1936, 40 min.
Boudu sauvé des eaux (Boudu Saved from Drowning), 1932, 81 min.
These are two of Renoir's most charming films. Both take place along the banks of the Seine - the landscape painted by Renoir's father - and serve as a kind of homage to the world of Impressionism. Based on a story by Guy de Maupassant, A Day in the Country catches the beginnings of a love affair between two middle-class day-trippers on a lazy Sunday afternoon in 1860. In the wonderful Boudu Saved from Drowning, Michel Simon plays a tramp happily and hilariously indifferent to the social codes of the bourgeois family that tries to improve his lot. The second film begins at 7:20 p.m.
