  • There's Only One Thing Good About this Movie

    After being a Beverly Hillbillies fan for 30 odd years, I finally got to see Granny as a 45ish year old Granny. That really brought a tear to my eye. Other than that, this movie was really silly. The opening: a toy ship sinking, a man floating on a bomb, a man-made whirlpool, a man on a horse. I can't really remember all of the embarrassments of this movie, but the storyline didn't help any. Very run-of-the-mill.

    This is a real shipwreck of a movie, made out of salvaged footage Renoir saved after a fight with the studio.But i doubt even in it's original form it would have made a good movie. All characters act either sedated or way over the top.None of it makes sense or rings true, it's a totally lifeless affair.Beyond salvaging; call in the wrecking crew.

  • Obsecure? Maybe. But it is worthwhile.

    It is regarded as one of the great film master Jean Renoir's lesser works. Because it is somewhat obscrure in development of the story line and the characters. Renoir tried to say something worthwile but with at first glance, it might be hard to receive the message. However, significance of this film lies on that particular difficulty. The cinema was meant to be complex and puzzling. THR WOMAN ON THE BEACH quite frequently makes us think and feel about our real self. Three main characters are all obsessed with something, but in same time, they are trying to get out of ossession and struggle to seek truth of themselves. You may wonder how they managed to accomplish this within little running time as 71 minutes, but by the end they managed to accomplish the task rather convincingly. Thanks to strong characterizations by three leads, and sensible direction from the director. I would rank THE WOMAN ON THE BEACH as the Renoir's hidden masterpiece. It is quite intelligent and experimental.

    Watched this movie when it was shown on TCM years ago. Wish they would show it again. Not crazy about Ryan in this but the rest of the characters are very good. A different plot than the usual. would love to to own it and watch it over and over. One of Joan Bennett's comments really stuck with me--something about ghosts of the past and facing your fears, then they won't be fearful anymore.
