    My first viewing in 10+ years. This is nothing less than a subtle masterpiece. I don’t think we hear enough talk about Renoir being one of the greatest filmmakers.

I truly had a great time with this one.

I found the story in the film was handled with such care and delicacy. I think many people could learn a lot about how they carry themselves by watching this one, myself included. 4/5
