What stands out is how Renoir denies he does 'art films' or that he is an auteur at all. Even when Rivette throws you some 'c'mons dude!' he just shrugs and says he makes industrial films, mainstream films. A whole generation of wannabe kids and pretentious faux VOD cinéphiles claiming they're this and that and this man, this cinematic giant, just shrugs it off, i'm not an author. What a surprising film this was.
