Recommended Posts

Two of Jean Renoir's more entertaining movies are slated for tomorrow on the Import series.  French Can Can relates the story, more or less fictional (probably more than less), of the popularization of the famous French dance, and the establishment of the equally famous Monmartre institution, the Moulin Rouge.  Jean Gabin, intrigue, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, jealousy, and some great dancing, tho not enuf of it.

 

The Golden Coach, or Le carrosse d'or, relates the story of an acting troupe slogging it's way through South America, it's tribulations in one town in particular.  The fortunes of the troupe are intimately linked to the fortunes of it's leading lady, who is simultaneously courted by three of the local BMOC's.  Ann Magnani, intrigue, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, jealousy--but no dancing.  But with Anna Magnani, who needs dancing?

 

Make room, Max Ophuls, you're not the only one who can put out a lush period Technicolor extravaganza.

Thanks very much for mentioning these Renoir movies, slaytonf.  I've seen neither, and look forward to them.
