Goofs

When Pierre-Auguste walks in on Jean Renoir being bathed, a modern toggle-style light switch is visible on the wall. The toggle switch wasn't invented until 1917, which is a few years after that part of the film. Earlier light switches were push-button style, and the switch on the wall is also of a modern plastic style that is very much later. See more »

Jean Renoir: You just bit into one of my father's models. I understand. Renoir's paintings make me want to eat them too.

Film comme Peinture
11 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

The moment the film opens, you are immersed in the countryside of southern France. The colours are warm and very expressive. In fact the film is shot very much as a painting in itself, which is quite beautiful. All natural light. You want to relax and soak it all in, but there is a thread of tension that moves throughout. As "the boss" says, life is like a cork and you have to follow it where it leads you. For Renoir himself, the flesh and its immediacy is all important. It must be seized and exalted in that very moment. For his son Jean, he feels the need to go back to war, a higher calling as it were. He falls for the spell of his father's model Andrée. You constantly feel the tension between the privilege of the "Chateau" and the needs of the flesh for life to continue. A visual experience.
