I found this a very honest and accurate account of the Impressionist Painters. As it says at the beginning: This is a true story and is based on letters & interviews. Having read a great deal about the painters, I did hear several bits of dialog that rang true. I'm sure there's the odd liberty here and there. The film primarily focuses on Monet, Manet, Degas, Renior, Cezane, and Bazille. However, being a woman I really wish they had included, even if in passing, a bit on the contributions of Morisot & Cassatt. Still, A very enjoyable 3 part series. Beautifully filmed and some very good acting. (and Richard Armitage is just lovely to look at!) DVD also includes an extra biography of Monet.
