Jean Renoir in Color!

Add event to my calendar

The new art house hit Renoir has sparked renewed interest not only in French Impressionist painter Pierre-August Renoir, but also in his son, master filmmaker Jean Renoir. Jean is well known for such 1930s b&w classics as Grand Illusion and Rules of the Game. But in the 1950s he started working in color, and in this short series we present four of his greatest color works, one of which plays explicit tribute to his father and the impressionist era.

Admission to each film is $9; Cinematheque members $7; age 25 & under $6. For more information, call 216.421.7450 or visit www.cia.edu/cinematheque.

THE RIVER

Jean Renoir's exotic, lyrical, and deeply moving drama partially inspired Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited. Claude Renoir, nephew of the director and grandson of the painter, did the exquisite Technicolor cinematography. A young Satyajit Ray also worked on the film. From a Rumer Godden novel. In English. 35mm. 99 min.
