Four separate stories theatrically framed
using familiar Renoir themes. Le Dernier Reveillon (The Last Christmas Dinner), is a highly stylized and expanded version of The Little Matchgirl; Le Cireuse Electrique (The Electric Floor Waxer) is a funny comedy sung to music by Joseph Kosma, in which a wife neglects her husband for her vacuum cleaner; Entr'acte stars Jeanne Moreau as a turn-of-the century singer; Le Roi d'Yvetot is a story of manners and morals in which a middle-aged man with a seductive young wife is teased by the townspeople. Jean Renoir's last film. French with English
subtitles. 100 minutes.
