Features Nadia Boulanger teaching group classes. The film seen here underwent several transformations. When it was first done, it was divided into three different episodes, a form which left Bruno Monsaigeon dissatisfied. On the occasion of Nadia Boulanger's ninetieth birthday in 1997, he reworked it and made it more compact by removing some of the sequences that struck him as weak and by shooting some extra footage that allowed him to add the testimony of Igor Markevitch and Leonard Bernstein, two of Nadia's most famous disciples
Le Petit théâtre de Jean Renoir = Little theatre of Jean Renoir by Jean Renoir( Visual )

3 editions published between 1969 and 2001 in French and English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: Jean Renoir (1894-1979) is generally regarded as the most distinguished of all French film directors and there are few critics who would not rank him amongst the greatest directors of all time. Certainly the generous humanity he brought to his work made him one of the best-loved of French film-makes. His last film, "Le petit theatre de Jean Renoir", was originally made for television and consists of three short stories, each introduced by Renoir himself. In addition there is a brief interlude between the second and third sketch, during which Jeanne Moreau sings "Quand l'amour se meurt", a sad song of "la belle epoque". "Le dernier reveillon" is based on a tale by Hans Christian Andersen, in which an impoverished old couple, after inheriting the leftovers of a sumptuous meal, have their own final celebration before dying in the snow. "La cireuse electrique" is an operatic comedy, in which a floor-proud housewife subjects two successive husbands to the tyranny of an electric polisher until the second throws it out of the window of their high-rise flat, only to have his wife leap out after it. "Le roi d'Yvetot" is the story of an older husband, his young wife and the doctor who comes to attend to the dog, but stays to mend everything that needs fixing. The inevitable happens, but though at first the husband is shaken when he discovers the liaison between his wife and his friend, he soon realises that the three of them love one another too much to risk their happiness for the sake of common jealousy and convention. This last story features Fernand Sardou, Francoise Arnoul and Jean Carmet in the leading roles
