Synopsis

When A Day in the Country was finally released in 1946, ten years after it was shot, it was hailed as an ‘unfinished masterpiece’. Since then, Jean Renoir’s masterly adaptation of a story by Guy de Maupassant, running at just under 40 minutes, has grown in reputation to become his best-loved film.
