About the Film:
Gilles Bourdos, 2012, France, 111 mins. French with English subtitles Hawai‘i premiere
Set on the French Riviera during the summer of 1915, Gilles Bourdos’ lushly atmospheric drama explores a pivotal time in the lives of master painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir and his war-wounded son, Jean. The Renoirs’ beautiful home and majestic countryside grounds reverberate with familial intrigue when father and son fall under the spell of a radiantly beautiful muse called Andrée. As one generation of creativity gives way to the next, this enchantingly headstrong young woman becomes the dying painter’s last inspiration, and the unexpected figure that may turn Jean’s life around.
