I'm not familiar with your particular car but a lot of Renaults seem to have a similar set up. There's an electric motor inside the door and it operates a cable system (called the regulator) to move the window. These cables can snap but usually you would still hear the motor click etc when the switch is pressed.

If there's no noises etc when the switch is pressed I personally wouldn't automatically suspect the regulator. The best thing to do is to strip the door panel off and have a look - if its a broken cable you'll spot it quite easily.

If the cables are ok then you need to start checking the power feed/switches/wiring/motor.
