Aroview: Sumptuous, sun-kissed art biopic based on the last years of impressionist painter Auguste Renoir (Bouquet) during World War I, and the muse/model who became the creative link between he and his son, the soon to be renowned film-maker, Jean Renoir (Rottiers).
Notably, the film employs the services of a convicted art forger, Guy Ribes, to re-create the Renoir paintings present in the film.

4 stars (Very Good) Beautiful & interesting drama-doco on the two Renoirs, painter & filmmaker son; how they both exploited women in similar ways. Idyllic landscape, but at the heart a sharp edge which erodes this Eden.~Sandy
3 stars (Good Enough) The first two-thirds of the screenplay is excellent but then it loses its way somewhat as its focus shifts away from Renoir Snr. Also, a rainy day or two would have added a bit of variety and realism to the weather.~tubbs
