Le Déjeuner sur l'Herbe

0 Love It
Save it
Often seen as a paean to Nature (and Renoir père - it was shot at Auguste Renoir's house at Les Collettes). With its odd tale of a future bureaucrat liberated from glacial rationalism through enforced submission to Nature's whims, Le Déjeuner sur l'Herbe is one of Renoir's most ravishing, and simultaneously most irritating films. Again and again, sumptuous photography collapses into cold argument.
