"Magical and elusive ... 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
This comedy of manners, tempered by a dark and cynical current, follows a French aviator who, during a visit to an estate, falls for the wife of an aristocrat. Such begins a tale of romantic intrigue, with infidelities compounded by lies and distrust. Created on the eve of World War II, RULES skewers the frivolity of the moneyed class. (France, 1939, 106m, 35mm print, Janus Films)


ABOUT THE SERIES:
Great movies are works of visual poetry. As with other forms of poetry, our understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John's College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings-each in the best screening format available-to celebrate the work of eight of cinema's essential artists.
