RENOIR: In US Theaters – 29th March 2013, A film by GILLES BOURDOS, starring MICHEL BOUQUET, CHRISTA THÉRET & VINCENT ROTTIERS
- The Côte d’Azur. 1915.
In his twilight years, celebrated impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir is tormented by the loss of his wife, the pains of his arthritic old age and the terrible news that his son Jean has been wounded in action.
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, untamable spirit…and as he does so, within weak-willed, battle-shaken Jean, a filmmaker begins to grow.
