Critic Reviews for The Golden Coach (Le Carrosse d'or)
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.
Audience Reviews for The Golden Coach (Le Carrosse d'or)
A trio of men are inexplicably drawn to actress Camilla. They woo. They court. There are moments of screwball comedy shenanigans. There is a message about social status and power tied up with the fate of a schmancy coach. (The opening and closing seem to be old school red/blue 3D. I don't think the theater where I saw the movie was aware of this so no glasses were offered and the projectionist kept trying to focus the film.)
one of renoir's masterpieces. magnani is the perfect center for the many layered stories here. exceedingly clever set designs. a delight
Jean Renoir's foray into English is not terrible to behold but it barely captures interest. Feels dated and silly at times. A good performance by Anna Magnani however.
