I, Dalio-Or, The Rules of the Game
The great French actor, Marcel Dalio (Renoir’s Grand Illusion), made a career in French cinema of playing shady characters and small-time crooks: informers, blackmailers and gangsters. In other words, the stereotypical Jew. Landing in American cinema after fleeing the Nazis, he was no longer “the Jew,” but now “the Frenchman.” Filmmaker Mark Rappaport presents us with two Dalios, or are they the same?

The award-winning writer and producer James Schamus (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain) crafts a poignant and faithful adaptation of Philip Roth’s Indignation as his directorial debut. Hailed by Roth himself as the best film adaptation of his work, Indignation is a moving portrait of Marcus Messner, the son of a Kosher butcher who sets off for college in 1950’s Ohio and finds his atheist self at odds with its Christian Midwestern culture.
