"Stage and Spectacle: Three Films by Jean Renoir"
1953/1955/1956
Directed by
Jean Renoir

The Criterion Collection presents three jubilant masterpieces from late in Jean Renoir's career that find the director indulging his lifelong obsession with life-as-theater. One of the great works of postwar French cinema, The Golden Coach (1953, 103 minutes), charts the affairs of an 18th-century actress (Anna Magnani) as she travels through colonial Peru with a commedia dell'arte troupe. She is simultaneously pursued by a bullfighter (Ricardo Rioli), a soldier (Paul Campbell) and the Viceroy (Duncan Lamont). French Cancan (1955, 93 minutes) stars Jean Gabin as a night club owner who re-discovers the can-can. "Renoir hurls his cancan artists at the viewer, tempting us with the consuming spectacle, which is...inherently kinetic and ineffably voluptuous" (Andrew Sarris). Elena and Her Men (1956, 98 minutes), considered by Renoir "une fantasie musicale," casts Ingrid Bergman in a film about the power of love, the power of women, the folly of progress, the beauty of laziness, and the evil of dictators. All three films in French with English subtitles.  294 minutes.
