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.

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.

Visually stunning; mentally soporific.

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