Renoir

A film by Gilles Bourdos starring Michel Bouquet, Christa Theret, Vincent Rottiers

 

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.


“As sensually beautiful as the work of its subject matter, French filmmaker Gilles Bourdos’s dreamy biography ’Renoir’ is more a series of tableaux than a narrative film.”
–Linda Barnard, Toronto Star

Set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, Gilles Bourdos’ lushly atmospheric drama Renoir tells the story of celebrated Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean, who returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I.

The elder Renoir is filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy when a young girl miraculously enters his world. Blazing with life, radiantly beautiful, Andree 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 young Andree. Their beautiful home and majestic countryside grounds reverberate with familial intrigue, as both Renoirs become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse.
