Director, actor and screenwriter, Jean Renoir is one of the most original filmmakers in the history of French cinema. A true pioneer, Renoir always sought to push the boundaries of cinema. He made neo-realist films ten years before Rossellini and experimented with cinéma vérité twenty years before Godard. His films have influenced generations of subsequent film makers – including François Truffaut, Luchino Visconti and Satyajit Ray.

Considered one of the first “auteurs”, he is a cinematic master whose unique poetic style combined a vibrant humanism with a passion for beauty and nature. With his trademark use of deep-focus and a moving camera, Renoir’s work is rich with energy, exuberance and the joy of life.

This collection brings together an overview of Renoir’s work spanning over 25 years, including his anti-war masterpiece “La Grand Illusion” which is often voted one of the greatest films ever made. Funny, moving, true and still as fresh now as when they were made, Jean Renoirs films are essential viewing.
