Renoir (2012)

Directed by
Gilles Bourdos

French drama based on the story of impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, his film-maker son Jean and their shared muse Andree Heuschling, who later became known as early film icon Catherine Hessling. On the Cote d'Azur in 1915, having reached old age, Renoir is tormented by the loss of his wife and beset by rheumatoid arthritis, which has severely deformed his hands and threatens to hamper his ability to paint. But he continues to work, aided by an entourage of trusty female staff, while waiting for the return of his son Jean who has been sent to fight in WWI. One day a spirited young woman named Andree shows up at the Renoir estate looking for modelling work.
