Made in 1959 by famed French director Jean Renoir, this super rare and OUT OF PRINT VHS movie is a classic in foreign film!
The film was named to year-end top ten lists by Andrew Sarris, Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Rivette, and François Truffaut.
Set near the ancestral home of his painter father, Auguste, and filmed in an impressionistic style, Renoir has made a 'filmed poem' to the mystery and power of nature. The story centers on a hardened biologist and candidate for President of the United States of Europe whose dedication to genetic engineering and the power of science is broken by the love of a peasant girl.
