Post The malcontents.
I've just watched an interesting documentary entitled " Renoir(s) au fil de l'eau".

Jean Renoir, the film maker, talks about his father, the painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir , and about his films: he comes out as an original with a sense of humour. I was mostly struck by the unusual composition of the documentary. There were many extracts from his films with constant changes from colour to black and white, and also extracts from American movies-- the whole thing would have required extensive knowledge of older film for complete understanding but as it was it was still enjoyable.

There was a very brief passage about his Hollywood experience-- he made only one film there, and it looked like it was in the 1960's.

He said he saw the USA as a club for European malcontents-- I must say I had never thought of it this way before, but I like the phrase. :smile:
