Renoir on Renoir, is a comprehensive collection of essays by, and interviews of, the legendary film-maker Jean Renoir, who created such classics as The Grand Illusion, The River, and The Rules of the Game. Renoir's career in cinema, which stradled the transition from silent film to the talkies, has influenced a subsequent generation of film-makers. Between 1954 and 1967, Renoir was interviewed by such eminent film-makers and theorists as Jacques Rivette, Francois Truffaut, and Jacques Becker. The interviews were originally recorded and published in the distinguished Frnch film review Cahiers du Cinema, as well as 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. Renoir on Renoir will be appreciated by students and critics of film, as well as anyone who would like to know the behind-the-scenes stories of some of the masterpieces of French cinema.
