At his side is Andrée, a young woman who rejuvenates, enchants, and inspires both father and son.
Plot: The Côte d’Azur. 1915. In his twilight years, Pierre-Auguste Renoir is tormented by the loss of his wife, the pains of arthritic old age and the terrible news that his son Jean has been wounded in action. But when a young girl miraculously enters his world, the old painter is filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy. Blazing with life, radiantly beautiful, Andrée will become his last model, and the wellspring of a remarkable rejuvenation. Back at the family home to convalesce, Jean too falls under the spell of the new, redheaded star in the Renoir firmament. In their Mediterranean Eden – and in the face of his father’s fierce opposition – he falls in love with this wild, untameable spirit… and as he does so, within weak-willed, battle-shaken Jean, a filmmaker begins to grow.

Renoir: cinema as an impressionist art form
This film is deliberately full of short scenes without apparent rational purposes. If there was one or maybe two such scenes, one might see those as plot holes or dead ends, i.e. as flaws.
Personally, I see this film as an impressionistic film about a famous impressionist painter. The very thin storyline along with the numerous vignettes of the daily life of a painter, his model, his sons and his family/maids (eating, painting, cooking, talking about this and that, sleeping alone or together, bathing, or simply being idle), all filmed with the extraordinary beauty of the Côte d’Azur and its unique light which drew so many painters to the region: everything concurs to making of this film a painting on film. A painting that uses the impressionist technique: myriads of small brush strokes of colours which seem out of place, unexpected or even plain wrong, whose purpose we understand only when we look at the overall canvas once finished. Renoir is such a painting.
This is a masterpiece. I found it as mesmerizing as the most beautiful impressionist paintings, whether they are by Renoir or Monet, Degas or Cézanne. I was literally transfigured by the sheer beauty of the images, and could not care less for the meaning of every little strokes of this large fresco of the beauty of nature in that region blessed by a magic sunlight… There is no pace when contemplating a painting. Everything else stops while one immerses oneself into it.
And if there is one overall purpose for this movie, it is contained in the short epilogue shown at the end of the film. Jean Renoir became the famous film director of international renown, and this movie conveys the circumstances -mostly his relationship with Andrée – that led him to take this career at a time when he saw himself as mere canon fodder with nothing else after the war had ended. There are several ways to tell a story, and this is a new one. The originality of Renoir (2012), what makes this movie so unique is that it transposes a painting technique to cinema.
Do not expect much action. As Pierre-Auguste Renoir says in the movie (paraphrasing) as an almost zen principle: “Do not interfere with the course of nature: picture yourself as a cork carried over by a stream, and let yourself slip away slowly as time flows by…”. This is exactly how one should watch that extraordinary movie. A healthy film for the soul.
This film recounts the story of the great painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir and his son, Jean, the great film director. The film takes place when Pierre-Auguste continues to paint despite health problems and Jean is returning home on leave as a soldier in World War I.
The film has remarkable beauty about it. This is well helped by the photography, scenery, settings, and music. There is also a charming performance by Christa Theret as a painting model (Andree Heuschling) who would later be an actress in Jean’s films. The reference to her history in the post-script is quite saddening.
The slow pace of the film is pleasant but makes one wonder if the film could have been shorter at this pace. It’s still a pleasant experience.
