The Rules of the Game- A Tuesday Night Classic

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

It took decades for Jean Renoir’s The Rules of the Game to be recognized as a masterpiece. The film received terribly negative reviews and even provoked near riots in Paris upon its release. As a result, Renoir cut twenty-three minutes from the original version. And even then, it was banned by the French government. The original negative was destroyed during World War II, and only in 1959 was the film fully reconstructed from surviving prints and embraced by audiences and critics alike. Now, thanks to an unprecedented digital restoration, audiences can see the film in a form as close to Renoir's original intentions as possible. Playing with the lightest of touches, yet stinging like the greatest of tragedies, The Rules of the Game has come to be regarded as one of the finest movies ever made. Unrated / 106 min. In French with English subtitles. description from janusfilms.com
