Description

Set on the French Riviera in 1915, writer/director Gilles Bourdos' lushly atmospheric drama Renoir tells the story of celebrated Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Michel Bouquet), in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean (Vincent Rottiers), who returns home to convalescence after being wounded in World War I. The elder Renoir is filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy when a young girl, Andre (Christa Thret), miraculously enters his world. Blazing with life, she will become his last model, and the wellspring of a remarkable rejuvenation. At the same time, Jean also falls under the spell of the free-spirited Andre. Their beautiful home and majestic countryside reverberate with familial intrigue, as both Renoirs become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse. Renoir locates a fascinating moment of change, one century's way of thinking giving way to the next, and the passing of the torch from a great painter to the great filmmaker of such classics as Grand Illusion and Rules of the Game. (Fully subtitled)
