Renoir is very adept at blocking out scenes of group revelry, and there is a giddy wedding party sequence that acts as an oasis between emergencies, joining the entire town on bootleg liquor and dance… The Southerner is one of Renoir’s most direct, most simple films, and certainly one of his most moving.

Renoir’s most perfect American film, which can also be counted among his greatest overall… The lyrical, cracker-barrel realism of The Southerner would provide a beacon for future followers – Charles Burnett, for example, has spoken of the film’s influence – but it remains in a class by itself, a pioneer piece of American neorealism.

Beulah Bondi’s grotesque Granny undercuts the family scenes, but Renoir’s life-embracing sensibility and veracious, atmospheric style sweep you up in the change of seasons and volatile environments. The film’s haunting possum hunt and nightmarish, disorienting flood are as visceral and poetic as the rabbit shoot in The Rules of the Game.
