Une Partie de campagne

Dir. Jean Renoir

France 1936 | Black & white | 39 mins | Cert PG | Drama

Cast: Sylvia Bataille, Georges Saint-Saëns

Renoir’s masterly adaptation of a short story by Guy de Maupassant is perhaps his best-loved film. On a country picnic a young girl leaves her family and fiancé for a while and succumbs to a brief romance. Renoir’s sensuous tribute to the countryside – and to the river – has seldom been surpassed.
