Regisserad av Jean Renoir
Frankrike, 1939

Spelets regler Regisserad av Jean Renoir
Renoir let his cast improvise during the shoot, and the dichotomy between the chaotic narrative and meticulously-planned long takes gives the picture the documentary feel that Altman film would emulate.

Jean Renoir’s masterpiece remains the gold standard against which all ensemble dramas are measured. Renoir juggles a number of major characters and honors each one’s perspective, resulting in a group portrait in which every character is sympathetic while remaining poignantly fallible.

Renoir’s operettalike confection is booby-trapped; stupefied revellers fixing their gaze on a player piano as it rattles out the “Danse Macabre” take their place among history’s passive victims.

  • Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Spelets regler

    A perfect film. A rare comedy with incredible depth of characters and a simple but complex story. They are all very colorful and well acted characters. It is hilarious, sad and extremely entertaining. The dialogues are meticulously well written and the camerawork really immerse you into this interplay of characters "stealing" each other's wife. Lying is one of the rules of the game

  • ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Spelets regler

    By all means, this film may just possess the most fluid camerawork in cinema which effortlessly immerses the viewer into the comedy. However, I am sad to inform that I am not the biggest fan of comedies of manner as their jolliness can sometime rub me the wrong way as is the case with this film's first third. As such, the best moment, for me, are the more quiet and tender that follow and they are what I will remember

  • kopello's rating of the film Spelets regler

    I think it's impossible to dislike this. I remember watching it in my film class (by then I had already seen it), and even the typical people in the class who hate silent/b&w films (which annoyingly, was nearly everybody in the class besides me and the professor) enjoyed it.

  • tidal waif's rating of the film Spelets regler

    3,5 Don't know what neoclassical gauge of stern virtues the erstwhile bourgeoisie used to judge itself against or projected outside as desired appearance to cause the film raise such a ruckus back then, but I could bet the situations mounted here would warrant a class's confused and endearingly maladroit humanity nowadays. It persuades one for a spell that the 'gaya scienza' of relationships is a truly French affair.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Spelets regler

    This is hands down one of the greatest films ever made and also one of the most entertaining. Brilliantly crafted by Jean Renoir, this comedy of manners moves like a bullet and never lets up until the end credits roll. This is what true filmmaking looks like.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Spelets regler

    Seen on 35 at the Metrograph, and I realized for the first time how much, quite apart from a rich masterpiece, this is also a robust audience movie. What does it mean? First, that pure heroism has no bearing in how we lead our lives. Second, that upper- and lower-class people are both human beings like anyone else—only, when "accidents" happen, one side will have to pay and one won't. Them's the rules. Essential.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Spelets regler

    Altman tried to emulate this with Gosford Park, and even that multistory master couldn't quite match Renoir's scathing satirical incisiveness of the bourgeois elites. Technically, it's a marvel up there with Citizen Kane. The narrative is almost Shakespearean in scope, and the intent is potent (at the cusp of WWII). French Cinema deserves its acclaim. Renoir (along with Vigo) set the precedent. Outstanding.

  • Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Spelets regler

    A perfect film. It's easy to see why this movie influenced Altman, but it may be greater than anything he ever made. It's such a fascinating drama, and I think it will reveal even more greatness upon further viewings. Easily one of the best movies I've ever seen.
