Set in India, THE RIVER is the story of an English teenage girl Harriet (Patricia Walters), who lives there with her family and is the eldest of five children. Harriet and her friends - the beautiful Valerie (Adrienne Corri) and the Anglo-Indian Melanie (Radha Shri Ram) - are all stirred by the visit of a young American pilot (Thomas Breen) wounded in the war.

Jean Renoir's first colour film in this newly restored print fully realises the exquisite Technicolor photography of Claude Renoir, Jean's nephew.
