Toni (1935)

In the 1920s, the Provence is a magnet for immigrants seeking work in the quarries or in agriculture. Many mingle with locals and settle down permanently – like Toni, an Italian who has moved in with Marie, a Frenchwoman. Even a well-ordered existence is not immune from boredom, friendship, love, or enmity, and Toni gets entangled in a web of increasingly passionate relationships.

Director: Jean Renoir.

    haven’t seen this–probably the most underrated of renoir’s great string of masterpieces in the 30s—since 1970 at the old new yorker theatre, where it was on a double bill with pagnol’s regain, which i’m happy to see you’ve just put up…..saw this double bill twice, wisely since until now these films never turned up…….thanks so much for these treasures after half a century of waiting…….

    I saw Pagnol’s Regain a few weeks ago and this film is a perfect complement to it. What a treat.. Many thanks for providing a platform for the great and near great films that without your help would be be diifficult to find much less access whenever one has the inclination to view them.
