La chienne

Jean Renoir Frankreich, 1931

Francisco R.'s rating of the film Die Hündin

Renoir's direction doesn't follow the contemporary rules of that period, but relies solely - like all great filmmakers - on his own notion of form and narrative, one of the many reasons this film has aged extremely well, in addition to the great performances of course.
