The Golden Coach

Directed by Jean Renoir

François Truffaut refers to it as “the noblest and most refined film ever made”. Set to the music of Antonio Vivaldi and with the vivacious Anna Magnani, Jean Renoir’s ravishing, sumptuous tribute to theatre involves a viceroy who receives an exquisite golden coach and gives it to the tempestuous star of a touring commedia dell’arte company.

In Peru in the eighteenth century. Camilla, the star of a theater company, hesitates between three men. The Viceroy gives her his magnificent golden coach. A young Spanish officer suggests the two of them to settle down together among Indians. Ramon, a torero, offers her a share of his glory.
