'Renoir': The painter, his model, and his son

Renoir paints with his prick, and what interests him is skin, obviously


Making a film about a famous painter, composer, or writer is a particular challenge. Not only must you be historically accurate, but your film itself must be worthy of the artistry of its subject. Bourdos takes on two famous creatives; Pierre-August, whose painting The Bathers Henri Matisse ranked “among the greatest works of art ever painted;” and Jean, who was called “the greatest of European directors: very probably the greatest of all directors — a gigantic silhouette on the horizon of our waning century,” by Orson Welles in an obituary published in the Los Angeles Times. Despite the greatness of his subjects, however, Bourdos’ work is merely pleasant and cheerful.

Dir. Gilles Bourdos; writ. Jerome Tonnerre and Gilles Bourdos, based on a book by Jacques Renoir; feat. Michel Bouquet, Vincent Rottiers, Christa Théret (R)
