Great film for art lovers who enjoy slow pace films. Full of historical passages on the work of great master Renoir. Beautiful and sensual cinematographic.

The gorgeous cinematography, as close to a Renoir masterpiece as is possible on film, is what kept me engaged. Definitely a slow film of amazing beauty, but it will frustrate those that love a fast, strong plot.
