Renoir knew more about what it took to truly love others than any other film maker, but at the end even Octave has to walk away from the den... read more

Renoir's look at bourgeois life in France at the onset of World War II. An assorted cast of characters - the rich and their poor servants - meet up at a French chateau for various reasons and the result is murder.

"I dare you to find another movie with such a large group of fully fleshed out remarkable characters. Renoir is at his most skilled here. Simply the perfect movie."

"Another Jean Renoir's movie, and I belive on of the greatest he ever made. Rules of the Game (La Regle du jeu) is a very moral film about frequently amoral people. "

Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: A huge ensemble. Great decor and costumes. It has some sharp dialogue. The Downs: I know it is the type of film I should love - a neglected film that was removed from the public in twenty years - hated and booed at the premiere, but somehow I just can't see to warm up to it. It is probably a film that demand repetitive viewings in order to appreciate it."

"Culprit: Variety Staff "Jean Renoir, who directs, wrote the scenario and dialog, and takes a leading role, has made a common error: he attempts to crowd too many ideas into 80 minutes of film fare, resulting in confusion." Date: July 6, 2010"
