Storyline

Set in Paris in 1919, biopic centers on the life of late Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, focusing on his last days as well as his rivalry with Pablo Picasso. Modigliani, a Jew, has fallen in love with Jeanne, a young and beautiful Catholic girl. The couple has an illegitimate child, and Jeanne's bigoted parents send the baby to a faraway convent to be raised by nuns. Modigliani is distraught and needs money to rescue and raise his child. The answer arrives in the shape of Paris' annual art competition. Prize money and a guaranteed career await the winner. Neither Modigliani, nor his dearest friend and rival Picasso have ever entered the competition, believing that it is beneath true artists like themselves. But push comes to shove with the welfare of his child on the line, and Modigliani signs up for the competition in a drunken and drug-induced tirade. Picasso follows suit and all of Paris is aflutter with excitement at who will win. With the balance of his relationship with Jeanne... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Beautiful Work Of Theatrical Art
11 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kudos to those involved with this project which allows movie-goers to understand a little more about the private life and time of Amadeu Modigliani. And special thanks to the private funders, whose support of independent productions make movies with meaning possible -- and in this case, turned a relatively obscure dream into a wonderful reality!

This period piece is beautifully done. The acting is superb, as well as the cinematography, editing, music and writing. And did I mention the acting? Wow! Andy Garcia was brilliant, along with excellent performances by Elsa Zylberstein (as Jean Hébuterne), Omid Djalili (as Picasso) and cameo by the Romanian actor who played Renoir.

Thank you for this beautiful work which, I'm sure, will be appreciated for years to come!
