The Rules of the Game

Great Party Movies

The Party: a shooting party and theatrical revue at the Marquis’ château.

In Jean Renoir’s ultimate comedy of manners, amorous entanglements are exposed, objects of desire are swapped, and nobody plays by the rules during a weekend retreat in the French countryside. Structured as a farce, yet every bit a biting satirical look at bourgeois social forms coming to an end under the shadow of war, the film is rightly considered one of the all-time best. 

Jean Renoir. 1939. 110 m. NR. France, French with subtitles. Janus Films.

2:45 PM 5:10 PM 7:30 PM 9:50 PM
