Jean Renoir is widely considered as one of the most important technical innovators and politically engaged filmmakers in cinema history. Reassessing the unique qualities of Renoir's influential visual style by interpreting his films through a blend of Gilles Deleuze's film philosophy and previously unpublished production files, Barry Nevin provides a fresh and accessible interdisciplinary perspective that illuminates both the complexity and diversity of Renoir's oeuvre. Exploring canonised landmarks in Renoir's career, including La Grande Illusion (1937) and La R gle du jeu (1939), the book also considers neglected films such as Le Bled (1929) and Diary of a Chambermaid (1946) to present a rounded analysis of this quintessential French auteur's oeuvre.
