Van Gogh, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Modigliani, Picasso and Renoir lived and worked within a half mile atop the Parisian hill called the "mount of martyrs." In this vintage film, made in the early '60s as part of the CBS series Accent, filmmaker Jean Renoir gives an engaging tour of his famous bohemian neighborhood, discussing what life was like in a community of artists where his father was known affectionately as "the boss." Jean talks about such luminaries as C├ęzanne and Degas, providing unique insights into several paintings depicting the hill and the Moulin d'la Galette such as L'absinthe. 30 minutes.
