The Southerner

Jean Renoir USA, 1945

msmichel's rating of the film Der Mann aus dem Süden

Renoir's take on American sharecropping has some fine moments and on second watch enjoyed the bland but heartfelt performances of its leads Scott and Field. Quite amusing was the turn by Beulah Bondi as the old curmudgeon Granny Well shot mostly on location with often a near documentary feel to it this slice of Americana, dashed dreams and hope has a certain timeless quality and offers few but rich rewards.
