This is a review only of the central part of this three part film: a hundred minutes of conversation between Renoir and Michel Simon, star of Boudu and La Chienne and three of Renoir's other films. The two old men had not seen each other for ten years, but they obviously enjoyed their meeting and the whole film consists of an after-dinner chat between them, talk of how they made films and how others make films, anecdotes, laments for the way the world and humanity have changed, praise for Shakepeare and Rabelais, dogs and cats they have known, of the Roman emperors ("cons" in Renoir's opinion) while the rest of the crew sit across the table and egg them on.
