Bonjour and welcome back for Week 2 of our Viva La France AntiTrash 2021 Marathon! That's right, we continue pushing our way through the French canon with Jean Renoir's lauded 1939 masterclass, The Rules of the Game or Le Régle du Je\u. This week, we discuss his influential style, keeping up appearances, the look at class, and the interwar context of this upstairs-downstairs comedy.
