These were the most inspirational books to me as a film student (as was Truffaut’s The Films in My Life). My Life and My Films by Jean Renoir. Beauty and the Beast: Diary of a Film by Jean Cocteau

These were the most inspirational books to me as a film student (as was Truffaut’s The Films in My Life). Back to contributors’ list. Beauty and the Beast: Diary of a Film by Jean Cocteau. The ‘I’ of the Camera: Essays in Film Criticism, History, and Aesthetics By William Rotman.

Here is the autobiography of the little boy with golden curls in the paintings of his father, Pierre Auguste Renoir-the boy who became the director many consider the greatest in history. François Truffaut called him "an infallible filmmaker . . . Renoir has succeeded in creating the most alive films in the history of cinema, films which still breathe forty years after they were made."

This isn't a book that can be read alone. Jean Renoir's book on his father Pierre-Auguste Renoir,(Renoir My Father), also needs to be included for it to be a true autobiography. The book is incomplete other wise. Even those coming from the excellent movie Renoir will need to read both books. The reader will also need to watch a couple of Jean Renoir's movies around the same time. There is a collection on Amazon that includes some of his silent films like Nana and I would suggest adding his Grand Illusions. A lot of work for one book to be sure, but well worth the effort. Think of it as a real life Trilogy. One well worth 5 stars if done right.

To talk about Jean Renoir is to talk about one of the greatest masters of the cinema ever. His filmography is -at the same time- ambitious and admirable. Once you watch "Rules of game" or "The great illusion" you'll understand the reason of his fame. But there's more: "Nana" , "The crime of Monsieur Lange", "The human beast", "The river", , "Toni" (The pioneer film of the Italian Neo Realism), "French Can Can" or "Helen and the men". All these entries show us we are in front of a superior level of cinematographic expression where the eloquence of his craft is supported by visuals and subtle travellings.

To read this book is to get close to the soul of this genius; his childhood, his relationship with his father (Pierre Renoir), his points of view about Charlot, Von Stroheim and so many issues of absolute interest make of this reading a very rewarding experience.

By nothing of this world, you should do without this fabulous book. Go for it as soon as you can.

Needless to say this text is a referential and one of my favorite ones since I got it in 1989.

Jean Renoir is among the two or three greatest directors of all time. A man who made 20 masterpieces, changed the face of cinema with his dynamic compositions, narrative flexibility and ability to direct actors.

Indeed his genius with actors, some among the very best(Laughton, Gabin, Fresnay, Marcel Dalio, Dita Parlo, Ingrid Bergman, Anna Magnani) and others who are non-professionals or newcomers(the cast of Toni, The River) isn't derived out of tyrannical dictatorship but out of an abililty to help his actors to find the characters within them as well as doing it in a way that made it seem it was their idea rather than his.

In his autobiography, Renoir doesn't describe each and every one of his films in detail. Even the films which he talks about he doesn't go far into the details of how the film was shot, the actual experience of production, the numerous hassles and practical difficulties that he had undoubtedly faced in his legendary classics like ''Grande Illusion'', ''Regle du Jeu'', ''The River'', ''La Chienne'' and such and such. In that sense the book is a dissapointment yet to those who want a look at the man himself and his way of thinking which is helpful in giving further insight into his films, the book is priceless.

Renoir the man stands in contrast to his image as a ''great intellectual's film-maker'', indeed Renoir himself expresses astonishment at being regarded by his enemies as a transgressive revolutionary and by his friends as a radical innovator. As someone who made it his life's mission to reveal human beings as beyond categories and labels, it comes at no surprise that he is both none of his labels and all of it at the same time. Renoir's innovation is that he was able to be truthful to all at all times and at the same time be able to do so in different ways...on occasion rigorous naturalism(''Toni'', ''La Bete Humaine'', ''The Southerner'') at others glorious theatricality(His colour trilogy of the 50's) he maintains that his greatest concern is the search for ''inward truth''.

Renoir is rare among canonical giants in that his films if subtitled properly can be seen and enjoyed by anyone. No film degree or intellectual rigiour is needed to enjoy the magic of seeing Renoir. This falls in with Renoir's philosophy of people being connected by horizontal lines rather than vertical lines. People from Cambodia to Finland can appreciate Jean Renoir as much as if not more than Frenchmen.

The remarkable aspect of Renoir's book is it's refreshing optimism. Written at the end of his career, Renoir admits that he'll never make another film again yet there's no bitterness at the prospect only acceptance of his long, difficult career(especially in the 30's where he considered quitting cinema several times), the love of his family and friends and his awareness of himself as a part of the world and of the role the world played in shaping and influencing him. One can find the fullest expression of this theme in ''The River'', one of the most transcendent and graceful films ever made.
