I Love this Movie
We got disc one of this series through our Blockbuster account. I could watch it again and again. The story of the Impressionists is about innovation, originality, and friendship. It's told from the viewpoint of Monet's recollections, but it tells the story of Renoir, Bazille, Manet, Degas and others as well. At times it's kind of "teachy" more than a typical movie, but that's because the script is almost line for line based on letters they wrote and interviews they gave. The locations are the actual places in the paintings, and the actors look just like the people in the canvases. Can't wait 'til disc two gets here!
