"This is certainly the DVD bargain of the year so far: five features and two shorts by Jean Renoir, one of the movies' genuine masters, presented in first-class restorations..."
This collection of films from Jean Renoir spans the great director's career. Beginning with two silent films, LA FILLE DE L'EAU and NANA, the three-volume set also includes the feature LA MARSEILLAISE, as well as two shorts, SUR UN AIR DE CHARLESTON and LA PETITE MARCHANDE D'ALLUMETTES. Two later films, LE TESTAMENT DU DOCTEUR CORDELIER and LE CAPORAL EPINGLE, complete this look at one of France's most important filmmakers. Martin Scorsese and Alain Renoir appear in a documentary about the elder Renoir's contribution to cinema.
