Film Description

A glorious treasure from the golden age of French cinema, Boudu Saved From Drowning finds a wealthy bookseller coming to regret rescuing the eponymous tramp from drowning in the Seine and providing him with shelter in his bourgeois household. Michel Simon stars as the unruly vagrant who causes havoc in this civilized envrionment, seducing the bookseller's wife and his mistress and thoroughly disregarding social niceties. With a sprightly spirit of anarchy befriending Renoir's usual lyricism, humanism, smoothly gliding camera and mastery of mise-en-scene, here is another priceless marvel from the great Frenchman. The film was remade in Hollywood in 1986 as 'Down and Out in Beverly Hills'.
