USA 1945, 91 minutes, B/W
Dir. Jean Renoir
Genres: Classics, Drama


Aroview: One of dir. Renoir's finest American films, follows the year-long trial of a young family who attempt to grow cotton on a derelict farm.

Battling sickness, troublesome neighbours and the seasonal extremes, this humourous and subtle commentary on the human condition, is a rewarding slice of yokel America, full of interesting details and observations.
