Boudu Saved from Drowning

Boudu sauvé des eaux

When a tramp is saved from suicide in the Seine he becomes an unwelcome house guest.

Image from Boudu Saved from Drowning

France 1932
Dir Jean Renoir
With Michel Simon, Charles Granval, Marcelle Hainia
English subtitles
Certificate PG

Though, at the start, the titular tramp is saved from suicide in the Seine, Renoir’s gleefully irreverent comedy embodies the joys (and spirit) of spring as Boudu repays his bourgeois saviour’s generosity by becoming a house guest of the most ungrateful and disruptive kind. The tramp’s anarchic vitality is reflected in Renoir’s breezy shooting style, and the glorious summery ending.
