Directed by Jean Renoir | 1959

With Nora Swinburne, Esmond Knight, Arthur Shields, Suprova Mukerjee, Thomas E. Breen

“For Andre Bazin, this was the Rules of the Game of Renoir's postwar period, a film in which 'the screen no longer exists; there is nothing but reality.'”
—Dave Kehr

The greatest of Renoir’s late-period films, The River takes its story from Rumer Godden’s book about two children growing up in India in the waning years of British colonialism. Into this framework Renoir finds the perfect expression for his lyrical humanism around the central metaphor of the constantly flowing water. Also on show is the stunning Technicolor cinematography by Renoir’s nephew Claude, a longtime collaborator.
