A satirical romantic comedy 'Picnic on the Grass' is a playful and visually beautiful film inspired by the paintings of Renoir's father Auguste. Stuffy presidential candidate Etienne Alexis is a scientist who believes the passion should be eliminated and that artificial insemination will be the world's salvation. To celebrate his engagement to a German scout mistress he hosts a picnic in the countryside.
