  1. I went to see ‘Boudu Saved From Drowning’ for the second time, at the National Film Theatre in London, the year before I left the city to move to Norfolk. I loved it again, of course.
    La Grande Illusion remains a real classic of the genre, undoubtedly.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Jean Renoir is without a doubt one of the greats of French Cinema. And as for Grand Illusion and The Rules of the Game; what more can be said other than masterpiece 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
