  1. Renaissance man! ❤


  2. Is it a good movie? Sounds like an interesting concept this documentary-drama mix, but I’m not sure it makes interesting watching too 😉


    • it’s okay. I find the historical errors annoying, and I don’t like Monet’s painting, so I’m not the one to ask, but lots of people really like it.


    • Richard, besides his nasty Monet-beard, is radiating in this film. His blue eyes are breathtaking. They do work a lot with strong coulours, obviously!! There are a couple of hilarious BTS videos. Selbst schuld wenn man da nicht mit ihm mitlacht!!


  3. Of course he did. 😉 Thanks for this, it was interesting to read, linking in as it does with RA’s comments about the painting the actors were required to do. linda60 is spot on – RA is luminous, even with the manky beard and wig…..lots of smiles and laughter. The Impressionists is a visual feast. I found it interesting to see the circumstances within which the various paintings I was familiar with were created.


  4. Well worth watching Richard is wonderful, it never fails to make me smile, and the scenes with Amanda Root are interesting, Monets love life was unusual.
    Reminded yesterday because I watched Mr Turner ( film ) and was wondering if TI had influenced them especially with scenes in the exhibitions.


    • I would call this film a very odd portrayal of Monet’s love life. He was almost certainly not as honorable as the film seems to suggest.


  5. I found the movie very interesting and enjoyed it both for Richard and the other actors and the scenery was breathtaking. Learning the background regarding the arts at this period in time was an extra plus. But I for one am not into impressionist style, but it did not stop me from enjoying the film. I guess with my last name, which is found on old Italian sculptures and paintings I just prefer the classical/traditional.


    • Yeah, I’m not a huge fan of the style, either. It is superficially pretty but seems facile to me. Nothing draws me back to look at most of those pictures.
