My Life And My Films

Here is the autobiography of the little boy with golden curls in the paintings of his father, Pierre Auguste Renoir-the boy who became the director many consider the greatest in history. François Truffaut called him “an infallible filmmaker . . . Renoir has succeeded in creating the most alive films in the history of cinema, films which still breathe forty years after they were made.”

Here are tantalizing secrets about his greatest films-The Rules of the Game, The Grand Illusion, The River, A Day in the Country, La Bête Humaine, Toni.
