Boudu Saved from Drowning is a French film originally released in 1932. The original title, Boudu sauve des eaux, literally translates to Boudu saved from the waters. Directed by Jean Renoir, the film centers around the trials and tribulations brought on the family of Edouard Lestingois (Charles Granval), during their attempt to help a vagrant. Boudu (Michel Simon), a suicidal tramp, is rescued after he plunges from the pedestrian bridge into the Seine by Lestingois. Boudu is brought into the Lestingois home in the hopes of reforming him into a socially acceptable, middle class man. The attempt to bring conformity to Boudu's free spirit wreaks havoc on the household, and includes not one, but two seductions of the females residing in the home. Cleaned up and the recent recipient of lottery funds, will Boudu forfeit his free spirit ways? This movie was remade in 1986 for American audiences by director Paul Mazursky under the title Down and Out in Beverly Hills.moreless
