  1. Many thanks for the first of those links – I hadn’t read the James Leahy piece before, and he absolutely nails just why Renoir is so important, while also debunking the notion that these marvellous films are dusty, cobwebbed “classics”.

    I think you were with me on at least one of the occasions that Le Crime de Monsieur Lange ended to spontaneous applause from the audience – and the mere fact that this happens at most screenings shows just how directly this now 72-year-old film still gets is message across. And this is relatively minor Renoir!
