Marvel at Jean Renoir’s beautiful tribute to the Paris of his father.
Dir Jean Renoir
With Jean Gabin, Françoise Arnoul, Maria Félix
Jean Renoir’s fond tribute to the Paris of his father Auguste deploys a brilliant palette evocative of the Impressionists to colour his leisurely tale of an impresario (Gabin) determined to revive the traditional cancan at the Moulin Rouge. A wry celebration of a simple, unconditional, joyous love of art for art’s sake, it climaxes with one of the finest dance sequences ever filmed.
The screening on Wednesday 12 September will be introduced.
