Top Critic

It may be trenchant realism, but these are times when there is a greater need. Escapism is the word.
June 24, 2006
Renoir's most successful American film, loose, free-flowing, honest.

A rich, unusual and sensitive delineation of a segment of the American scene well worth filming and seeing.

Jean Renoir's 1945 examination of dirt farmers in the American south is probably his finest Hollywood film, which is to say a masterpiece.
