Boudu sauvé des eaux by Jean Renoir( Visual )

75 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boudu, a shambling tramp, is taken into the middle-class household of a Parisian book seller after being rescued from the Seine. The collision between nature and convention is represented as a series of humorous incongruities as Boudu shows scant regard for bourgeois decorum. The humour is gently satirical and subversive rather than cutting, but is far from the original play's affirmation of middle-class culture. The theme of moral freedom is realised through a formal freedom. Renoir's use of longtakes, camera camera movement, despite a loosley framed composition with the continuous suuggestion of a world beyond the frame, was the antithesis of the then developing Hollywood style of tight composition and reverse angle cutting

The young man becomes the focus of attention for Harriet, her older friend Valerie, and for Mr. John's half-Indian daughter Melanie

What is cinema? by André Bazin( Book )

19 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Bazin's What Is Cinema? (volumes I and II) have been classics of film studies for as long as they've been available and are considered the gold standard in the field of film criticism. Although Bazin made no films, his name has been one of the most important in French cinema since World War II. He was co-founder of the influential Cahiers du Cinema, which under his leadership became one of the world's most distinguished publications. Championing the films of Jean Renoir (who contributed a short foreword to Volume I), Orson Welles, and Roberto Rossellini, he became the protege of Francois Truffaut, who honors him touchingly in his forword to Volume II. This new edition includes graceful forewords to each volume by Bazin scholar and biographer Dudley Andrew, who reconsiders Bazin and his place in contemporary film study. The essays themselves are erudite but always accessible, intellectual, and stimulating. As Renoir puts it, the essays of Bazin "will survive even if the cinema does not.""--PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION
