Episode 619: Rules of the Game (1939)

Episode 619: Rules of the Game (1939) Guest Co-Hosts: Robert Bellissimo, Otto Bruno

French Month continues with a look at Jean Renoir's Rules of the Game. Released originally in 1939, the film was based on Alfred de Musset's Les Caprices de Marianne and skewers French nobility in a comedy of manners. Released on the eve of World War II, the film was not a hit cut down to a mere 86 minute running time. It would later be expanded another 20 minutes in a version that not even Renoir had ever seen.

Robert Bellissimo and Otto Bruno join Mike to discuss this beloved film.
