Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Jean Renoir (1894-1979), a ceramicist turned filmmaker, married Catherine Hessling--the vivacious model who had cared for his ailing father, Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir--and made her the star of his films. In this impressive critical biography, written with the cooperation of the director's son Alain, Catherine is portrayed as an unloving, vengeful, sexually cold mate who hated being a mother. This revealing portrait traces Renoir's support of the French Communist Party, his escape from Nazi-occupied France in 1940 with Dido Freire, who became his second wife, his trying years in Hollywood, where he was treated as a novice or a spoiled brat, and his return to France and his cultural roots. Bergan, coauthor of Faber Companion to Foreign Films , deftly illuminates Renoir's fluent, compassionate, poetic naturalism. Photos. (Aug.)
Library Journal
This U.S. edition of a British work of the same title (Bloomsbury, 1992) is published to coincide with the centenary of the French film director's birth. Unfortunately, Bergan's journalistic style is tedious, giving little sense of the joie de vivre of the director of La Bte Humaine (1938) and The Rules of the Game (1939). A few black-and-white photographs tossed into the middle provide a brief respite, and a useful filmography, bibliography, and detailed index are included. But the footnotes, which are lumped together by chapter at the end, are useless for scholarly research. Though this could be useful as a supplementary guide to Renoir's films, libraries should first consider Andr Bazin's much-praised 1973 biography Jean Renoir (LJ 4/1/73; Da Capo. 1992. reprint) or Celia Bertin's passable Jean Renoir (LJ 8/91).-P. Steven Thomas, Sangamon State Univ., Springfield, Ill.
Booknews
Offers appraisals of all of the French director's films and an account of his working methods, and details his personal life, from his idyllic childhood as the son of a master painter, to his marriages and his death in 1979. Includes b&w photos, previously unpublished letters, and a filmography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
Gordon Flagg
French director Jean Renoir is revered for such masterpieces as "Le Regle de Jeu" (which invariably appears near the top of critics' all-time-best lists) and "La Grande Illusion". His childhood, during which he was frequently a subject in the paintings of his father, Auguste, was spent in Paris' bohemian Montmartre district. He had become one of France's leading filmmakers by the onset of World War II, when he emigrated to the U.S. Stifled by the Hollywood studio system, he shuttled back and forth across the Atlantic during the 1950s in order to realize the films he wanted to make, and he also made excursions into French TV and theater late in his career. His valedictory film, "Le Petit Theatre de Jean Renoir" (1969), came 45 years after his first. In addition to compellingly relating the director's long and fascinating life, Bergan conveys what makes his films so great, from their unflagging joie de vivre to their sympathetic depiction of all characters, heroes and villains alike. Although Bergan doesn't add a lot of factual biographical details to those of Celia Bertin's 1986 biography, his critical insights into Renoir's important body of work make this the superior choice for libraries.
