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. FranÁois 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." In this book, Jean Renoir (1894-1979)presents his world, from his father's Montemarte studio to his own travels in Paris, Hollywood, and India. Here are tantalizing secrets about his greatest films, The Rules of the Game, The Grand Illusion, The River, A Day in the Country, La BÍte Humaine, Toni. But most of all, Renoir shows us himself: a man if dazzling simplicity, immense creativity, and profound humanity.
