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 (Michel Boquet, All the Mornings of the World), in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean (Vincent Rottiers, I’m Glad My Mother is Alive), later to become the celebrated filmmaker behind Grand Illusion and Rules of the Game, 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. Renoir locates a fascinating moment of change as one century’s way of thinking gives way to the next, and the torch is passed from a great painter to the great filmmaker responsible for some of the most highly acclaimed classics of French cinema.
