The Impressionists (BBC) with Richard Armitage as Claude Monet
correction:time frame wrong, it was about the war between France and Germany in the 1870’s. My apologies.
This film was a bit underrated , but I think, after North and South, The Impressionists convinced me that Richard have a lot of promise. He was so young and vibrant, pulsating with the same energy of the shimmer of his water paintings, and yet so tender and artless in his rendering of the role.The love life was typical for a starving painter in Paris around WW I and made him more down to earth. I thought it was one of his best roles.
