Sat 23 Aug
La Règle du Jeu
Umbrella Entertainment
102 minutes
Director: Jean Renoir
Classification: G
French with English Subtitles

Hailed as one of the greatest films of all time, director Jean Renoir’s infamous La Règle du Jeu (The Rules of The Game) is a scathing indictment of French society on the eve of WWII. Heavily censored, and then banned outright (both by the French and the Nazis), Renoirs’ country house comedy of manners utilizes a labyrinthine plot and virtuoso deep focus cinematography to depict amorous intrigue, and tragedy, among a group of French aristocrats oblivious to a disastrous war. La Règle du Jeu unfolds at a weekend shooting party at the chateau of Robert de la Chesnaye and his wife Christine, where the guests include Robert’s mistress Genevieve, and Andre, an aviator who is in love with Christine. An upstairs downstairs bedroom farce ensues, with lovers and adulterers, masters and servants, playing out the morally bankrupt rules of the game. While the original negative was destroyed during the War, this fully restored print finally allows cinema lovers to savour the genius of Jean Renoir’s cinematic masterwork.
