Widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, Jean Renoir's masterpiece is a scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners. At a weekend hunting party, amorous escapades abound among the aristocratic guests and are mirrored by the activities of the servants downstairs. Poorly received upon its release in 1939, the film was cut by 23 minutes, and the original negative was destroyed during World War II. Only in 1959 was the film fully reconstructed and embraced by audiences and critics. Now, thanks to an unprecedented complete digital restoration, today's audience can see the film as Renoir intended. (Fully subtitled) Official Web Site
