30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Jean Renoir’s delirious romantic comedy stars Ingrid Bergman in her most sensual role as a beautiful, but impoverished, Polish princess who drives men of all stations to fits of desperate love.
In what may be his most vulgar film, a military coup d'état is transformed into A Midsummer Night's Dream.
I think this is going for like gentle farce and "love conquers all" but it mostly falls flat because it's about a right-wing conspiracy, like maybe even more than the color Renoirs that literally feature colonialism

More like 3.5 but all the performances are so great
