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 and his middle son, the filmmaker Jean Renoir. In declining health at age 74, the elder Renoir is filled with an unexpected energy when a young woman (who would become is last model) miraculously enters his world. At the same time, Jean also falls under the spell of the free–spirited Andree. Their beautiful home and majestic countryside grounds reverberate with familial intrigue as both Renoirs become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse.
