Boudu Saved From Drowning
2011
Description
Director: JEAN RENOIR
Jean Renoir’s ‘free exercise around an actor’ has Michel Simon playing the Calibanesque Boudu, a Parisian tramp who is rescued by the bourgeoisie book seller Monsieur Lestingois after a failed attempt at drowning in the Siene. Lestingois along with his wife Emma and servant Anne-Marie, are shaken by his derelict manner until they successfully drive out the beast in him. Arguably Renoir’s most important work from his first phase and testimony to the greatness of his vision, Boudu Saved From Drowning is fresh for audience and critical reassessment.
