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. 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.

"The famous scene featuring the graphic slaughter of pheasants and rabbits, with the disturbing shot of a rabbit in the last throes of dying, clutching its fore-paws to its breast; and the sweet, heart-breaking scene in which upper-class heiress Christine de la Cheyniest (Nora Gregor) admitted she loved her close friend - the clownish, middle-aged, low-brow Mr. Octave (director Jean Renoir) in a greenhouse: ("You know, it's you I love. Do you love me?...Then kiss me" -- when Octave gave her a war"

" This movie is mostly about characters at a country estate. They hunt animals, watch a stage show, and talk about or have extramarital affairs. I was unable to care much about them as people or their actions, even when something tragic happened. I liked some of the innovative camera use, the conviction of the acting in certain scenes, and attractive nature photography.

“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. 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 dense macabre of the manor house. Not sure if I am willing to do the same, but this film captures the passionate reasons why I sometimes want to just run away and become a hermit-while also really not wanting to- more fully than any other work of art.” read more
