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

Denigrated by the public, vilified by the critics, re-cut at the insistence of its producers, and finally banned by the French government as "demoralising" and unpatriotic, "La Règle du jeu" was a commercial disaster at the time of its original release. On the surface, a series of interlinked romantic intrigues taking place at a weekend shooting party in a country chateau, the film is actually a study of the corruption and decay within French society on the eve of the outbreak of World War II. It is now widely recognised as one of the greatest films ever made

Capolavoro assoluto del più grande dei registi francesi, La regola del gioco venne tagliato e boicottato fin dal suo apparire sugli schermi parigini nel luglio del 1939, a pochi mesi dalla guerra, il cui inevitabile scoppio è presagito in tutto il film benché non se ne parli mai. Si tratta infatti di una commedia drammatica che ha al suo centro una giovane viennese, Christine, un fine settimana nella tenuta del marito. Qui un'irresistibile forma di follia s'impadronisce di padroni e servi, facendo saltare tutte le regole

In order to retain control over the production of his masterpiece The Rules of the Game, the great French director Jean Renoir formed his a production company using his own funds and the support of friends. Nevertheless, Renoir's masterful commentary on the decadence of the French aristocracy at the eve of the second world war, ran over budget half way through production. Gaumont came to the rescue providing the necessary funds, however the films new investors insisted that Renoir cut the film from 113 minutes to 100 minutes in order to make the film profitable. The film's audience at its premiere in the Aubert Palace did not appreciate Renoir's humanistic yet critical perspective of the French ruling class, as a result the premiere was a disaster. The appearance of a Jew (Dalio) as part of the storyline was used as a pretext by French anti-semites to attack the film. Renoir's humorous critique of French society takes place during a weekend hunting party in which amorous escapades abound among the aristocratic guests, behaviour which is mirrored in the activities of the servants downstairs. The film was attacked in the press as an example of moral decadence, and caused a riot at one of the first screenings. Five days after its release the film was cut again, this time to 85 minutes. Even with these changes the film was banned by French military censors as "demoralizing". In 1942 Allied bombing destroyed the negative. The film was restored to its original version in 1956
