Renoiresque..., 20 March 2008
Author: dbdumonteil

Not only this short features Catherine Hessling,Auguste Renoir's favorite model and his son Jean favorite's actress from the silent age ,but it also recalls the movie the latter would make the following year "La Petite Marchande d'Allumettes" But whereas Renoir left out all that was Christian in Andersen's novel,Cavalcanti -the man who made two segments of the extraordinary "dead of night" including the "dummy " episode- had three people on the street play the role of the Greek chorus and sing Lili's praises."Her place is Heaven " then "She's gone to where she belongs" A silent short not to be mistaken for 'La Petite Lise" by Jean Gremillon,"La Petite Lili" is a realistic story albeit not devoid of poetry.
