Recommended readings - My Life and My Films
Son of the painter Auguste, Jean Renoir has brought to Cinema a unique realist touch with his many remarquable feature films. My Life and My Films is an unpretentious autobiography that Renoir dedicated to the French New Wave directors. His passion of his Art is palpable and he recalls his past with interesting details and retelling every important detail in his own particular storytelling manner.
With only 250 pages we have the "cream" of his career instead of having a pompous autobiography where the author caresses his own ego for almost a thousand pages...
For every Jean Renoir enthousiast and any Film Historian amongst us!
