The River (Criterion Collection)
- Rated NR
- Genre: Drama-Classics
- Release Date: 4/21/2015
This entrancing first color feature from Jean Renoir (The Rules of the Game), shot entirely on location in India; is a visual tour de force. Based on the novel by Rumer Godden, the film eloquently contrasts the growing pains of three young women with the immutability of the holy Bengal River, around which their daily lives unfold. Enriched by Renoir's subtle understanding of and appreciation for India and it's people, The River gracefully explores the fragile connections between transitory emotions and steadfast creation.
