Jean Gabin was France's greatest film star when this film was made. According to Renoir, Gabin's interest in locomotives and his desire to play a train conductor, was one of the primary reasons that this film was made. Once Gabin had agreed to star in the film, Renoir wrote the script in two weeks, utilizing about half the scenes in Emile Zola's novel. Gabin portrays the misogynistic Lantier, a conductor working on the Paris-Le Havre line and a man who is constantly off balance, a product of family violence and alchoholism. While walking beside the railroad line, Lantier witnesses a stabbing on board a passing train. Weeks later, as he pursues an affair with Séverine, the wife of his co-worker Roubaud, Séverine reveals that she was present during the murder aboard the train and that her husband was the assailant. Already obsessed with Séverine, Lantier makes a vow that he won't turn her in to the police. It is not long before Lantier and Severine begin to plan the murder of her husband

Renoir's meditation on friendship and chivalry in the midst of Europe's first mechanized war, was based on his own experiences as a French combat pilot and a prisoner of war. Renoir wrote the film as Europe slid towards World War II. Three French pilots, shot down during World War I, are drawn together during an escape attempt, despite different class backgrounds. Captain de Boeldieu is a wealthy aristocrat; Lieutenant Maréchal a self assured mechanic; and Rosenthal, a prosperous banker. Together they develop a daring plan to escape their imprisonment in a Bavarian castle. While escaping, Captain de Boeldieu is shot by the camp commander, but Marechal and Rosenthal manage to get away and eventually make their way back to France. When it was released, the film received an Academy Award as well as a prize at the Venice Film Festival, but due to the film's pacifist stance, it was banned in Germany and Italy

La régle du jeu by Jean Renoir( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners, in which a weekend at a marquis's countryside chateau lays bare some ugly truths about a group of haute bourgeois acquaintances. The film was a victim of tumultuous history: it was subjected to cuts after premiere audiences rejected it in 1939, and the original negative was destroyed during World War II. It wasn't reconstructed until 1959. That version, which has stunned viewers for decades, is presented here
