As with all of Renoir`s films, it is impossible to define the tone of The Golden Coach, so smoothly does comedy shade into drama, joy into despair, warm optimism into cool cynicism and vice versa.
What the whole thing comes down to is a stunningly colorful show, in the middle of which looms Miss Magnani.
Exquisitely shot by Claude Renoir, this is one of the great colour films.
This superbly crafted masterpiece about life and art, with a charismatic performance from the great Anna Magnani as a temperamental actress, was made by Jean Renoir after returning to France from a decade in the U.S. and filming The River in India.
The Golden Coach is Jean Renoir's invitation to sit back and enjoy the colorful, romantic, humorous spectacle that is real life.
What we take away from The Golden Coach are its sumptuous look and the sense that a master director is opening up to us with some long-standing passions.
Dazzling, joyful, beautiful, graceful
The Golden Coach, despite its preoccupation with the stage, is a distinctly cinematic experience.
