Renoir (2013); Fido's first

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, to-be-filmmaker Jean, who returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I.  Both father and son are filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy when the radiant young Andrée miraculously enters their world, leaving them both smitten.  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.  Featuring the sumptuous cinematography of Mark Ping Bing Lee (IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE).  Dir. Gilles Bourdos, France, 2013, 111 min., R, DCP, In French with English subtitles

Dinner at Fido's first for those interested. I'll be at Fido's at 7:00 p.m. It's across from Boscos and Sam's. My cell# is below if you don't spot us.

Parking information:

—Parking's always free in the Belcourt's lot when you're attending a movie (and do note that meters in Hillsboro Village are free on weekends, because there are times the Belcourt lot is completely full). However, you will need to get a parking pass.

—If you buy your ticket online and choose the "print at home" option, you'll have a parking pass attached to your ticket.

—If you buy your ticket at the box office, the Belcourt will actually give you a pass you can put on your dashboard (so you don't have to go back to the paystation and enter a code).

Derek will be in the lobby seated at a table at 7:55 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.  If you don't spot us or arrive later, call or text me at [masked]. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at.

“A lush, involving film that deals not with one Renoir but two… Classic French moviemaking with some modern twists.” —Kenneth Turan, LA Times

“It is so gorgeous to spend time immersed in this ripe peach of a cinematic world, populated with characters that seem to care only about pleasing themselves.” —Linda Bernard, Toronto Star
