Directed by Gilles Bourdos

A sumptuous biopic set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, this drama is inspired by the final years in the life of legendary painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Michel Bouquet). His son—and future film-directing legend—Jean Renoir (Vincent Rottiers) returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I. Jean is accompanied by Andrée Heuschling (Christa Theret), a captivating young woman who rejuvenates, enchants, and inspires both father and son. The film premiered in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival and was France’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film nomination at the Academy Awards.
