Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

These companion volumes offer first-hand accounts from two outstanding French film directors of their philosophies and (in Rohmer's case) assessments of other directors' work. Renoir is best known for his enduring masterpieces, Grand Illusion and Rules of the Game. His book is highlighted by four lengthy interviews from the influential French film journal, Cahiers du Cinema , which promoted the controversial auteur theory in columns by Rohmer and such future directors as Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard. Rohmer's volume offers many of his richest work for Cahiers, including reviews of films as diverse as Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? and Vertigo. The Cahiers material from both volumes is available in English for the first time. These are valuable additions to film scholarship, although the specialized nature of the material makes them more attractive for larger collections.

Format: Paperback
Renoir on Renoir: Interviews, Essays, and Remarks (Cambridge Studies in Film), 1990, 304pp.

<<<Renoir on Renoir is a 1990 collection of essays by, and interviews of, the legendary filmmaker Jean Renoir, who created such classics as The Grand Illusion, The River and The Rules of the Game. Renoir's career in cinema, which straddled the transition from silent film to the talkies, has influenced a subsequent generation of filmmakers. Between 1954 and 1967, Renoir was interviewed by such eminent filmmakers and theorists as Jacques Rivette, François Truffaut and Jacques Becker. The interviews were originally recorded and published in the distinguished French film review Cahiers du Cinéma, and shown on French television. They are an engaging account of Renoir's deep commitment to his chosen profession. Providing additional information on his ideas and theories on screen writing and directing, Renoir's essays also include lively anecdotes of the genesis and evolution of each of his films. They reveal behind-the-scenes of some of the masterpieces of French cinema.
