It has a curious, muted, infinitely poetic way of treating human passion.

Even these lapses often serve the positive function of bringing us closer to the people in the film, if not the characters. What one ultimately carries away from Toni, in fact, is a memory of felt presences rather than incarnations

Each sequence of the film is a tour-de-force of imagination: Renoir continues his investigations of depth of field and the moving camera and makes painterly use of the natural landscapes to counterpoint the drama.

Renoir invests it with a sense of character and place that gives it an unusually blunt and sensual impact.

A seminal film from Renoir, with powerful themes and a direct, immediate style.

Some of Renoir's staging, faithful to the characters' willfulness, is abrupt, with a casual lyricism caught on the fly.
