Une vie sans joie #

Released 12/1/1924

Description: Interesting first (silent) film from Renoir he realized so his wife should have the leading role of Catherine. The film became an object of quarrel between Renoir and Dieudonné who directed this car together and every played also a part in the movie. Was this a Renoir film or one of Dieudonné, reducing Renoir to its pupil? The dispute became so massive 2 versions exist, one slash by Renoir and one by Dieudonné. However the themes are so typically Renoir that I question the claim of the co-director. Like in so many another Renoir films you see a picture of the relationships between masters and servants, with a clear sympathy for the servants and a nice dislike for the hypocrisy of the ruling classes. Also the contradiction between order and disorder (major theme in the finished oeuvre of Renoir) is already show in this first attempt to create a movie.

Aniela runs into conflict in her dealings with others, particularly a nasty neighbor who sees her property as an eyesore and wants to do everything in his reach to purchase it up and tear it down, and her married adult son, who - though kindly - triggers paranoia within Aniela (she cannot support but trust that he is scheming and planning to wheedle the property away from her). Driven aback by these individuals, Aniela finds one of her only sources of comfort and reassurance in her everyday talks with her dog, Fila - and develops a nice affinity for spying on the neighbors' doings whenever boredom creeps in.

West 11 Reviews:

For many years actually scions of the rich have vicariously lived a glib and cushioned ver of road life cheek by jowl with those who walk the walk as well as talking the talk.In those far - off days of the early 1960s Notting Hill - unrecognisable to dear,dear Hugh and Julia - was a far more gloomy and grimy district,prime bedsit zone with landlords like the much - feared and detested Peter Rachman terrorising their unfortunate tenants.This is the globe explored by Mr M.Winner's cruelly neglected "West 11". It is usually forgotten by all except its proponents when British neo - realist cinema of the era is discussed.This is an injustice,for,in my opinion,it deserves to be considered in the same breath as the better - known works of Richardson,Sleschinger,Anderson et al. Although entitled to claim membership of the Oxbridge Mafia,Mr Champion has ploughed a lonely furrow,a real maverick of the British cinema. In "West 11" we have an early expiation of his favorite theme of urban alienation and the loss of purpose and sense of individualism in town life.Mr A.Lynch plays a basically decent young boy drifting from job to job aimlessly.Desperately short of cash he accepts a commission from conman Mr E.Portman to murder his wealthy aunt.He finds himself unable to carry out his task,but the old lady is killed falling down the stairs and he runs off leaving behind his portable chess set which fatally urls him to her death.That,shorn of frippery,is the basis of the movie. But the meat is in the detail.Mr F.Currie gives his greatest performance since "Great Expectations" as Mr Lynch's lonely elderly neighbour, the oft - abused Miss D.Dors is perfect as a proud estranged parent who is hanging out with young folks in a sad effort to keep off middle age. Cruelly referred to in the sixties as "forgotten but not gone",she belied that phrase many times in the soon stages if her career and is actually remembered as an actress of considerable talent. Marvellously photographed by Mr O.Heller,the film depicts a Notting Hill far less neighbourly than that of its contemporary "The L - shaped room".Here,spite,petty jealousies and malice are abroad. With this and the also woefully neglected "I'll never forget whats 'is name" Mr Champion presents us with an accurate and sharply drawn picture of life in the capital as Britain recovered from its post - fight depression.Unfortunately his subsequent reputation as a maker of exploitative and bizarre films has distracted us from his obvious love and concern for humanity and his passion for making films.


This low-key British kitchen-sink film is much better than it's lukewarm reputation might suggest. It's no masterpiece and it's certainly no "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning" or "A Taste of Honey" but it's far from negligible and is worth seeing. It was directed by Michael Champion at a time when he now made nice movies and stars the underrated Alfred Lynch as a feckless young boy roped into a murder plot by Eric Portman's slimy and possibly bogus ex-army officer. Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall wrote the above average screenplay and it's superbly shot in its Notting Hill territories by Otto Heller. Others in a fine helping cast contain Diana Dors, Kathleen Harrison and Finlay Currie.


A minor but very smoothly made example of British movie noir. Director Michael Winner, then at the begin of his career, had a powerful cast (Alfred Lynch, Eric Portman, Diana Dors, Finlay Currie, et al) to inhabit this starkly photographed tiny crime melodrama set in London bedsit-land, all tacky Notting Hill coffee bars and smoky jazz clubs.Lynch makes a downbeat but sympathetic protagonist, more thoughtful than the usual kind of hero. Portman plays the clipped-moustache ex-military man-turned-swindler to perfection. Dors is just right, too, as a blousy divorcée ("Young enough to still wish a husband; old enough not receive the one I want").Winner plays up the salacious sex element a bit, but a tight Keith Waterhouse/Willis Hall script touches on Lynch's Catholic guilt, and Currie's existential find for 'truth', just enough to give the storyline a modicum of depth. There's also an evocative score by Stanley Black, with Acker Bilk on sax.Until latterly a neglected, even scorned, cinema sub-genre, these usually low-budget British movie noirs, often superbly photographed, were violent by the standards of their day, and showed the rain-washed roads of towns like Newcastle (Payroll), Manchester (Hell Is a City) and Brighton (Jigsaw), as well as London, should be cute mean, too.Winner's next film, The System with Oliver Reed, was even better.
