The Rules of the game by Michel Leiris( Visual )
7 editions published between 1939 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
SUMMARY: 'Renoir chose the form of a classical eighteenth-century French comedy for this story of a society on the brink of collapse on the eve of World War II. Marcel Dalio plays the Marquis, Robert de la Chesnaye, who hosts a weekend's festivities at his country chateau. Among the invited guests are Andr ̌Jurieu, the dashing pilot who adores la Chesnaye's wife, Christine, and Octave, the melancholy, cynical clown who never quite fits into this bourgeous world. The weekend passes in a flurry of romantic intrigue, with a spectacular ft̊e, a disturbingly beautiful rabbit hunt, and a murder. 'My ambition,' wrote Renoir, 'was to illustrate this remark: We are dancing on a volcano.'' (SFSU)
