THE RULES OF THE GAME (LA RÈGLE DU JEU)
Directed by Jean Renoir, 1939, 1h50
At la Colinière, the deceptively idyllic country estate of a wealthy Parisian aristocrat, a selection of society’s finest gather for a rural sojourn and hunting party. While the masters are gathered around sumptuous banquets, the servants imitate and mock them during meals at the office. Over the course of the weekend the haute bourgeoisie acquaintances reveal themselves to be absurdly, almost primitively, cruel and vapid.
