"Set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915... RENOIR tells the story of celebrated Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, in declining health at age 74, and his 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, pere et fils, become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse" -- Container.

lovely to look at, but definitely not a biography of Renoir the elder as a painter nor Renoir the younger and a maker of great films. Andree is at the centre of the story as a muse for each of the Renoir men and a thorn in the side of the coterie of women who care for the family.

Gorgeous like a Renoir.

Visually stunning; mentally soporific.

Visually exquisite.

As with many French films, I did not connect with the main female character or believe anyone's "love" for anyone else. It feels like objectification and self-gratification.

The elder Renoir's pathos and strength as his hands became more gnarled and painful and the dynamics of the women of the household as they cared for him were much more real and poignant.

Superb film that brings Renoir to life. The wonderful visuals make you feel like you have stepped inside of a Renoir painting.
