What is cinema? by André Bazin( )

17 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in English and held by 1,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Bazin's What Is Cinema? (volumes I and II) have been classics of film studies for as long as they've been available and are considered the gold standard in the field of film criticism. Although Bazin made no films, his name has been one of the most important in French cinema since World War II. He was co-founder of the influential Cahiers du Cinema, which under his leadership became one of the world's most distinguished publications. Championing the films of Jean Renoir (who contributed a short foreword to Volume I), Orson Welles, and Roberto Rossellini, he became the protege of Francois Truffaut, who honors him touchingly in his forword to Volume II. This new edition includes graceful forewords to each volume by Bazin scholar and biographer Dudley Andrew, who reconsiders Bazin and his place in contemporary film study. The essays themselves are erudite but always accessible, intellectual, and stimulating. As Renoir puts it, the essays of Bazin "will survive even if the cinema does not.""--PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Boudu sauvé des eaux by Jean Renoir( Visual )

102 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michel Simon gives one of the most memorable performances in screen history as Boudu, a Parisian tramp who takes a suicidal plunge into the Seine and is rescued by a well-to-do bookseller, Edouard Lestingois (Charles Granval). The Lestingois family decides to take in the irrepressible bum, and he shows his gratitude by shaking the household to its foundations. With Boudu Saved from Drowning (Boudu sauvé des eaux), legendary director Jean Renoir takes advantage of a host of Parisian locations and the anarchic charms of his lead actor to create an effervescent satire of the bourgeoisie."--Website
Les bas-fonds = The lower depths by Jean Renoir( Visual )

51 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synopsis: Jean Renoir and Akira Kurosawa, two of cinema's greatest directors, transform Maxim Gorky's classic proletariat play The Lower Depths in their own ways for their own times. Renoir, working amidst the rise of Hitler and the Popular front in France, had need to take license with the dark nature of Gorky's source material, softening its bleak outlook. Kurosawa, firmly situated in the postwar world, found little reason for hope. He remained faithful to the original with its focus on the conflict between illusion and reality-a theme he would return to over and over again. Working with their most celebrated actors (Gabin with Renoir; Mifune with Kurosawa), each film offers a unique look at cinematic adaptation-where social conditions and filmmaking styles converge to create unique masterpieces."--Website

Partie de campagne = A day in the country by Jean Renoir( Visual )

49 editions published between 1936 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The outing of a simple Parisian family results in the amorous escapades of its beautiful daughter and convivial mother with two young blades. Set in the 1880's, the film forms an interlude in Renoir's career and illustrates a return to the sources of his inspiration in the landscape in which he grew up and in French literature. It reveals the filmmaker's relationship not only to his father, Auguste Renoir, but also to other Impressionist artists. The theme is typically French- that love found amid the beauties of nature will not be denied, however bittersweet the result may be. (Circulates)

The rules of the game = La règle du jeu( Visual )

15 editions published between 1939 and 2011 in French and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners, in which a weekend at a marquis's countryside chateau lays bare some ugly truths about a group of haute bourgeois acquaintances. The film was a victim of tumultuous history: it was subjected to cuts after premiere audiences rejected it in 1939, and the original negative was destroyed during World War II. It wasn't reconstructed until 1959. That version, which has stunned viewers for decades, is presented here
