The Impressionists (2006, TV mini-series)

If you like impressionist paintings, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir and their friends, this 3-hour movie is for you.

The whole story of friendship and rivalty is told by old Claude Monet, but mostly we see young Claude Monet played by this excellent actor:

The Impressionists Richard Armitage

If you didn’t recognize him, here is a hint 🙂

Young Claude Monet is one of best roles performed by Richard Armitage. And it’s very interesting to see in “The Impressionists” landscapes of Giverny, Normandy and Provence comparatively to the paintings that immortalized them.
