Storyline

George Smith, an architect in San Francisco, is feeling "a bit flat" after completing his latest, less-than-fulfilling project: designing a warehouse for a commercial complex. George's wife, Alice, tries to cheer him up by taking him to a party of artists, but it turns out to be a gaudy, pretentious affair that leaves both of them dispirited. After a restless night, George wakes up to find himself gazing with newfound fascination at the Picasso reproductions that adorn the walls of their apartment. Overcome with admiration for a truly brilliant artist, George impulsively proposes that he and Alice fly off to the south of France to track down Picasso and thank him in person. Alice agrees, thinking the trip will prove a delightful lark. But George's desire to find Picasso turns into an obsession that starts to take a toll on their seemingly ideal marriage.

Trivia

Serge Bourguignon was never officially credited as director on this film. His original footage was edited and his "cut" was deemed unacceptable for submission to Warner-7 Arts. Robert Sallin and his production company, Kaliedoscope Productions, were hired to re-shoot the film. Some of Bourguignon's footage was used in the completely re-structured final version. Sallin received the final and sole director's credit. See more »

The best way to understand Picasso's paintings
3 September 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This is the one thing that explained Picasso's paintings to me, when I just happened to see it on television many years ago.The long animated sequences extending the paintings are quite wonderful;they not only interpret the paintings but also show you why Picasso painted certain things the way he did - face extortions for example. All art students should be shown this film! It's also great for children. Whether the story surrounding the animations is any good I can't remember, but that's almost irrelevant! I have been searching for a copy of this film on video or DVD ever since these media became possible.But it just doesn't seem to be available. I can't understand why the film it is not shown on TV whenever there is a Picasso festival or exhibition.Can anyone tell me how I can get a copy of it?
