The pace is slower than blockbuster adventure movies, speed being sacrificed in the service of character development, and allowing time for the eye to absorb and appreciate the beauty and honesty of the performances given by a talented cast. The cinematography and direction make this a film likely to be appreciated by most art film lovers. The bad news... no big car chases, no messy murders, and nobody with superpowers... just a deep, rich, film that will leave you feeling glad you went. My wife and I both enjoyed this film. One caution, there is a fair amount of nudity... by one of the loveliest young actresses to grace the silver screen in many decades (Ms. Christa Theret). The nudity is sensitively and tastefully handled, never gratuitous, and always appropriate to the storyline. Expand

His son Jean (who later became the famous filmmaker) comes home from war to find an alluring young model working for his father. In addition to endless shots at the easel (with her posing nude), we watch her affect both men. All of this happens at the pace of the countryside with lovely cinematography, but little else. If you enjoy ur biographies slow and subtle, this is for you. Expand

This movie felt like a Renoir painting. It is beautiful and clear that someone cared about making sure that every visual aspect was well thought out and carefully placed. It doesn't make you feel too happy or too sad at any time. And whileThis movie felt like a Renoir painting. It is beautiful and clear that someone cared about making sure that every visual aspect was well thought out and carefully placed. It doesn't make you feel too happy or too sad at any time. And while experiencing it you may reflect on the reasons behind the work and question it's depth, but you can still be satisfied that it's purpose was simply to be lovely. Expand

Gorgeous period piece based on a true story. MIght have given it an 8 but going with 9 since I think this pic is under-rated. Could have used more character development but worth watching.
