Beautiful-looking but largely boring...There have been some terrific films about artists, but this isn't one of them.

Michel Bouquet's wonderful characterisation of Auguste Renoir remains the shining achievement of this delicate, reverential and sometimes gobsmackingly beautiful film

he soft Mediterranean light and the beautiful way in which the film is shot is certainly its strength. It is a pity that its tempo and story structure is not more engaging

Most films labor furiously, trying to infuse every frame with passion. Renoir is content to sit still, creating effortless beauty in the style of its subject, painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Birmingham Mail

Thanks to a remarkably unselfconscious performance from Christa Theret as Andrée Heuschling, we see the young model bringing the ageing impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir back to life - and ultimately inspiring his son Jean to become a filmmaker.

Gilles Bourdos' biopic is plenty pretty but the drama is a still life.

Overly dependent on the beauty of its Edenic setting, which is lushly photographed by Taiwanese cinematographer Mark Ping Bing Lee.

You would need a soul of potash not to savour the delicious fauna and flattering southern light. But the film never gets far beyond the decorative.

The bright, warm sunlight of the Cte d'Azur casts a golden glow over a film set in the summer of 1915.

The story falters when it runs through its very traditional, even hackneyed arcs ...

With its warm colors and sweet streams of light, its love of both the countryside and the human form, it makes you dream of painting. Or making movies. Or just luxuriating in the brilliance.

Thanks to ace Taiwanese cameraman Mark Ping Bing Lee, it conveys the inspirational qualities of sun-dappled light and rosy flesh.

There is just something unsatisfying about Renoir, as a feature that promises so much and yet delivers so little.

A film of lazy days, sleepless nights and mellow moments that will likely test the patience of those unwilling to resign to its unhurried pace.

Rated R for 'art-related nudity.' By that standard, shouldn't the Louvre be Adults Only?

You'll never look at a Renoir work the same way again, whether it's on a canvas or, in the case of Jean, celluloid. And for that, we can thank Andree Heushling, a beauty who inspired beauty in a most beautiful way.

Renoir is one of those movies where all the pieces are in place for something intriguing and insightful. To that end, the film fails.
