The Southerner

Jean Renoir USA, 1945

Panayiota Liouliou's rating of the film Der Mann aus dem Süden

The end hit me like a ton of bricks. Renoir astutely encapsulates the American spirit towards adversity. A movie about a man with undying optimism amidst the many various harsh realities of his world.
