  1. Samuel Wells's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    This film is strange, for having such an amazing resume between the director and actors, the film falls shockingly flat. Each of its features feels shockingly outdated and hokey. The music is palpably cloying. The tone is amiss, not fitting within any genre comfortably but also not genre breaking of any sort either. This leaves the film in a middle ground on many things.

  2. Jeff Heinzl's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    kill the capitalist asshole who kills himself to run a business praise the baby's death when the father is for profit move the camera up to see the second story step along the wet beach smile and escape

  3. Myles's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    What's right isn't always what's right. Kind of a cute satire of the publishing industry with scoundrels, money hungry debt collectors, and a whole lot of booze.

  4. Slappy McGee's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    (3.5 stars) Using flashback, Renoir tells a tale of how a murder comes to be. It's a unique device that works pretty well here. Renoir does a great job of building his story with great character development. Piece by piece it is layered together and amps up the tension of what we know is to come. Some really solid early filmmaking happening here. Quite enjoyable.

  5. Diderot's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    Renoir works with an ensemble cast, pointing forward to The Rules of the Game, weaving a story of murder into a politically-minded narrative of social solidarity.

  6. Honeychurch's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    quite lovely. would have loved to have seen even more of that laid up acrobat...

  7. Loz Loory's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    Superbly paced and well-edited. Lovely fairy tale where hard-working employees triumph over their capitalist oppressor. If only the real world were like that. Thought the female characters were well-drawn for this time period. Three had actual occupations and handled the predatory advances of Battala in different ways. If only a revolution like this would take out the current lecherous leader of the free world.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    Réalisé à la veille des élections du Front Populaire, nous avons un film adroitement orienté vers la solidarité ouvrière, contre le pitoyable monde des capitalistes exploiteurs. Oeuvre humaine et spontanée qui fait date dans l'histoire du cinéma... www.cinefiches.com

    Every time I see a Renoir's film I get more convinced that he is the most generous, fair and beautiful director of all time. How could you judge that crime after this film? It's not a apology to murder, it's just a film composed by grey areas. He completely blurred the black and white judgment and he creat in every spectator the space and time to fall in love and despise the characters without imposing.

  12. Katya Kazbek's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    I do love me some good socialist critique but this one was made using puppets and stereotypes, which is fun but not exactly elegant. Also, why have leftist agenda that doesn't acknowledge the blatant racism of the main character's writing? That said, I loved the dogs, Estelle's coat and the absolutely hilarious handling of the pregnancy.

  17. Greg S.'s rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    Simultaneously tells a success story and one of murder intertwined with vignettes of young love and even upfront sexuality. Renoir guides the viewer through the mini universe he creates with some of his finest camera work. Characters bounce off each other frantically and Renoir finds humanity amongst all of them. Renoir's use of music, transitions and female independence, struck me as incredibly modern. Masterpiece.

  18. Guy Sands's rating of the film The Crime of Monsieur Lange

    There is so much going on in this film! I love it! it's more naturalistic than Renoir's Toni or A Day in the Country in many ways, it has the irreverence of Truffaut and Godard's early work, It prefigures the mise en scene of Maurice Pialat, it has the naive poetic realism of the young Jacques Prevert, the sound is unbelievably naturalistic and creative. perhaps the best performance of Jules Berry. So Much!
