This magical and elusive work is so simple and so labyrinthine, so guileless and so angry, so innocent and so dangerous, that you can’t simply watch it, you have to absorb it.  (Roger Ebert)

Rules of the Game is the film that turn the worlds of the French film makers Alain Resnais and Francois Truffaut upside down. Commonly regarded as one of the greatest films ever made.”
(Peter Rainey)
