Jean Renoir

Jean Renoir, the great director, was born on September 15, 1894.  His greatest film is Rules of the Game (1939) which I think is the best film ever.  Romantic adventures among a group of wealthy people and their servants intersect with tragic consequences.  Renoir is very compassionate and fond of his characters even with their flaws.

Many of his best films are in the Criterion Collection and online on Filmstruck.
