LE CRIME DE MONSIEUR LANGE
France | 1936 | Jean Renoir
One of the best films from Renoir’s greatest decade, this effervescent comedy tells of a group of exploited workers at a French publishing house who band together to turn the company into a successful cooperative when their corrupt boss flees from debt collectors and disappears. Presumed dead, he turns up one day to collect the co-op’s profits… Co-written by Jacques Prévert. “Perhaps the most delightful of Jean Renoir’s films…Given its emphasis on the predatory behavior of powerful men and the precariousness of the journalistic profession, it is as topical as any movie made this year, and a good deal funnier than most.” –J. Hoberman, NY Times (2017). Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 83 min.
This film supported by a generous grant from Maison Française de Cleveland.
