This film's about being someone who experiences life with great passion and sensitivity, with wonderful and horrible insight into others, and therefore both a deeper love and a deeper hurt, a sensitivity which will always necessarily leave you on the outside.

" 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's huge ensemble. Great decor and costumes and it's sharp dialogue was the highlights for me, but maybe I just wasn't in the right set of mind this day? "

"" With The Rules of the Game, Renoir squeezed his defining narrative obsession of man's common humanity through the mirrors of a kaleidoscope, twisting it until the visions inside were almost too beautiful to mourn." - David Ehrlich"
