Storyline

A successful artist looks back with loving memories on the summer of his defining year, 1974. A talented but troubled 18-year-old aspiring artist befriends a brilliant elderly alcoholic painter who has turned his back on not only art but life. The two form what appears to be at first a tenuous relationship. The kid wants to learn all the secrets the master has locked away inside his head and heart. Time has not been kind to the old master. His life appears pointless to him until the kid rekindles his interest in his work and ultimately gives him the will to live. Together, they give one another a priceless gift. The kid learns to see the world through the master's eyes. And the master learns to see life through the eyes of innocence again. This story is based on a real life experience. Written by George Gallo

Best film of the year!
30 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Best film of the year in my opinion. I hope it gets wide distribution since it is being offered by a small independent producer with excellent credentials, George Gallo. Mr Gallo previously wrote "Wise Guys", "Midnight Run" and his best previous effort "29th Street". This is his best yet. Local Color is a sensitive film with outstanding art, color, and photography. Actor Armin Mueller-Stahl is especially good in his role. The premise of the film is that a young artist wants an "old master" to give him lessons and the old man is not a "touchy-feely" kind of teacher. Plot turns are unexpected and the ending is especially well done (many other options could have been used).
