RENOIR @ Landmark, Saturday, 3/30, 4:35 PM

What Emerson meant when he wrote "...beauty is its own excuse for being" might be justified by the late paintings of Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This movie tells the story of that period in the great artist's life, when he was under the spell of his muse, Gabrielle Renard...as was his son, Jean, who would become one of cinema's great artists. The trailer says it all. In French, with English subtitles.

Tickets are available at Landmark's website. I'm in K1.

Dinner and conversation after the movie at the Westside Tavern.

Synopsis:

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, Gabrielle Renard, 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.

    "A thing of beauty" how I describe the movie. an incarnation of a Renoir painting.
    Drama wise, not so much.
    Go for the beauty, don't expect an emotional catharsis.
