Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
A simple but powerfully restricted romance that builds up a deceptive bulk of superficiality before delving all too briefly into a sincere tretise on disturbing the calm of surface-level happiness to satisfy a deeper desire. (3.5/5)
Charming, bittersweet comedy directed by Jean Renoir.
A beautifully charming well made French film. 1001 movies to see before you die.
This is a beautiful short film from the great Jean Renoir. Though made in 1936, it still feels relevant and is just a beautiful and simple story, very well told. The scenery and cinematography are gorgeous. My only complaint is the character/actor of Anatole, every time he was on screen he made me cringe, but otherwise this is a short masterpiece!
A family from Paris spend a day in the country, where a couple of local gents conspire to romance the daughter under the nose of her fiance. A short, beautifully bittersweet vignette from Renoir based on a Guy de Maupassant story.
A short piece of art by Jean Renoir
From a 40-minute rural film that begins so light-heartedly, the genius of director Jean Renoir is the powerful emotions of sadness and remorse he weaves it.
A quick touching love story. Due to its short length, it does not bog down too much in excess, but gets right to the point.
Although considered an unfinished film, the footage was constructed into a surprisingly tight & emotionally solid cohesive narrative about a boy falling for a girl & reuniting with her years later, after she's married.
Prior to his antiwar humanist testament and his complete destruction of the bourgeois moral and mass media etiquette, Renoir envisioned Guy de Maupassant's enchanting love tale with an exquisite filming of the countryside and the Nature silences accompanying its peacefulness as it quietly became a witness of impulsive romances and broken hearts. This may be the earliest, most beautiful perspective of the countryside that had been captured in prewar cinema.
With all the pain in my heart, I must chop off half a star - still justifying its lack of completion - because of events of a higher force than the will of its creators. The surviving vignette provides enough evidence to confirm with a confidence of 99% that this was meant to be a magical 5-star masterpiece of the highest class, given its character variety, its camera dynamism and the tender score, elements that, even to this day, make me go sucker for this kind of delicate dramas. Those remaining years situated between the two holidays depicted in this surviving fragment rank as one of the most unfortunate cinematic losses of all times.
