Boudu Saved from Drowning

The critical consensus

Tier two Renoir, but well worth hunting down, not least for Michael Simon's mighty Catweazle beard.

****(*)William Thomas, Empire Online, 13/12/2010

This deliciously subversive 1932 social comedy kicked off Jean Renoir’s greatest period.

*****Philip Kemp, Total Film, 14/12/2010

There is an ingenious performance from Michel Simon.

****(*)Leo Robson, Financial Times, 15/12/2010

Almost 80 years on, it still has a superb energy.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 16/12/2010

Boudu Saved From Drowning is blessed by fluid camerawork, beautiful cinematography and riverine rhythms.

*****Sukdev Sandhu, The Telegraph,
