The Rules of the Game (1939) dir. Jean Renoir

soooo I made a second attempt last night to watch this film.  I had started it early last week and gave up a few scenes in because I needed to pack. 
Last night I took a break from unpacking to give it another try (because the DVD is due back to the library today) and I just couldn’t do it.  I stopped 30 minutes in and went back to unpacking.
It seems strange how much I disliked this one, given that I really really enjoyed Grand Illusion.  I even watched Grand Illusion twice in a weekend so I could listen to the commentary!
Well, despite sharing the same director, they are very different films.  I’d likely better be able to contrast them if I could stand to watch the rest of The Rules of the Game… but I don’t think that’s going to happen any time soon.
