Fifth about The Seventh

The Rules of the Game (La Règle du Jeu)

The Rules of the GameThe Rules of the Game: Jean Renoir presents the viewer with a wonderful farce; the plot itself is not as important as the presentation (as well as the implied criticism) of the world where the story takes place. The characters are broad and simple, but the group is large and the multitude of relationships is always a joy to watch. Dialogue is sharp, replete with great one-liners. Performances by the cast are, generally, stylized (this is, after all, a comedy) but a perfect fit to the material; Marcel Dalio is the one that sticks the most.
