Renoir

Meet outside to left of entrance at 4:45 (movie starts at 5:00).

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, Andrée 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 Andrée. Their beautiful home and majestic countryside grounds reverberate with familial intrigue, as both Renoirs, père et fils, become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse.

    I particularly enjoyed the cinematography which was almost Impressionistic in its use of light and color. The movie was enjoyable for what it was - a look at just a small timespan in Renoir's life - it was about him and not necessarily about his caretakers or family. I wouldn't categorize it as a bad movie, it was a character study and was not driven by plot, which accounts for its extreme slowness, I think.

    A series of somewhat slow-paced... moments. Quiet. Artistic. Pleasant.
