An impressionistic incantation, an air-filled home movie by Renoir

TV Guide
August 30, 2006
One of director Jean Renoir's oddest films, Picnic On The Grass is visually influenced by the Impressionist paintings of his father, Auguste Renoir, and Edouard Manet, but its plot could almost be considered science fiction.

Renoir manages to inject an uncommon amount of feeling into all the frivolity and whimsy; the results are both absurdist and sublime.

Again and again, sumptuous photography collapses into cold argument.

June 17, 2003
[A] rather reactionary and ponderous satire on modern society.
