Renoir - French Film Festival

This is a beautiful film, set in a picturesque French countryside.

The film portrays an ageing artist, a new young model, and his son who returned from the war convalescing.

Apart from that basic plot, there's nothing really happens in the film.

It quietly traces almost daily routine in his household. That may be the French style of film-making, and I think it works perfectly.

I really liked the film, probably because of that approach.
Just watching how Renoir goes about his painting itself is fascinating.

It pains me to see him suffering from terrible arthritis.
However, he possessed such an iron will to keep painting, seeing beauty around him.

That's really an inspiring experience.
