An imaginary insight into Pablo Picasso's creative mind and painted creatures and characters. We enter in his head and walk with him the intricate maze that was his imagination to find the creatures and stories that populated his psyche and came out when he painted a canvas. His imagination is presented as the myth of the maze and the Minotaur, and some of the characters in the piece are in Picasso's real paintings - his famous dove, the Minotaur, and the ladies of Avignon, among many others.

Minotauromaquia provides a unique depiction of Picasso
27 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

As with many unique animated shorts that I have reviewed here on IMDb, I discovered Minotauromaquia on Cartoon Brew from Amid. Directed by Spain's Juan Pablo Etcheverry, it is a clay-animated depiction of the great modern artist Pablo Picasso and his dreams and nightmares of his various creations particularly the minotaur after he sees him devour one of his naked women (this scene is very vivid so I definitely wouldn't recommend this short for children). The way scenes go back and forth in recreating many of Picasso's drawings and a dove that provides light provide some of the most fascinating images for such a well done short. This is highly recommended for anyone with a sense of adventure concerning the imagination.
