    1. من أمتع السير الذاتية السينمائية، كل كلمة مكتوبة بدقة، لا يوجد حشو، وروح مرحة في كل صفحة ورؤية رغم أنها سوداوية أو غير متفائلة للعالم إلا أنها تحتفي بكل بسيط وتحب الحياة بكل تجلياتها. منظور للسينما مدهش، للفن عموما، أجمل كلام مكتوب عن الأصدقاء، الكتاب أصلا سيرة للأصدقاء ولي [...]


    2. When I read a new book, I tend to rush through it in order to jump on the next book that is on my shelf. However with My Life and My Films, I read the book with patience and appreciation because not only does Jean Renoir give a detailed account of his films, he also shares life lessons; hence the title on the cover. On the very last page in the last paragraph in four words, Jean Renoir sums up his reasons to become an artist and at the same time gives his reasons for life. But in the sake of con [...]


    3. Amintirile lui Renoir din copilarie sunt dominate de figura tatalui- Pierre Auguste Renoir si a unei fete de saisprezece ani care-i servea ca model pentru unele picturi si-i tinea companie micului Jean. Gabrielle este si cea careia ii este dedicata cartea, deoarece regizorul sustine ca ea i-a facut cunostinta cu lumea teatrului, l-a invatat sa vada chipurile prin masti si sa aiba oroare de cliseu. Urmeaza primele sale intalniri cu cinematograful, fascinatia sa pentru un actor numit Charlot, inta [...]


    4. Renoir's account of his childhood, his politics, and his movie-making feeds a hungry nostalgia. I count this as an alone-on-a-deserted-island book--full of stories about real people and stories about stories: from his initiation to the theaters on the Boulevard of Crime, to his work with the "born actor" Jean Gabin, all the way to his unwilling abstinence from film-making in his final years in Hollywood. It's easy to side with Renoir's positions--that the external is a better starting point for [...]


    5. This chronological collection of vignettes from Renoir’s life is something of an autobiography, balancing anecdotes, personal theories, and life wisdom throughout. There is little analysis of his work here, but the sizable amount of background information, along with stories that reveal Renoir’s sensibility, make this a worthwhile and at times enlightening read.


    6. I wish I was born a hundred years about, mainly so I could've met this man. I love his films, and it seems to me we'd have been of one mind about lots of things. At least that's how he writes, and that's how me makes movies.


    7. A warm memoir from the master of French humanist cinema. Contains a touching portrait of his father, the painter Auguste Renoir.


    8. There is a great chicken recipe in either this book or the one about his father, Auguste.The greatest film auteur (in my book) talks about spontaneity and capturing real life on film.



    9. A memoir, a guide to film making, a philosphy, a missiosn statement. Reconmended even to those who are not fans of his films.


    10. تلفیقی از زندگی نامه و فیلم های ژان رنوار، به قلم خودش. اثری ست خواندنی و خالی از حشو و زوائد
