This brilliant analysis of the work of the Lumière brothers should be required viewing for every filmmaker and film critic. A conversation between film director Jean Renoir and the director of the Cinémathèque Française Henri Langlois accompanies more than forty rare mostly unknown early films.

“Art exists only when the viewers participate in it; in the case of the Lumière brothers’ films, viewers can conjecture whether a strolling woman is ill, happy, or tired, even though at the time of filming she was none of them.” Jean Renoir
