A good collage
20 July 2008 | by er-guilleSee all my reviews

This is an uncommon movie. It shows us the events and outlook on life of an eccentric painter, representing the freedom of spirit, and its influence in a young boy (his grandson) who's left in his care during his mother's acting tour. Some clashes take place between the young boy, the grandfather and the daughter, that are inevitable, but very well acted and presented. I feel the movie is like a story of growth, maturation and learning more than anything else, and as such, is a process that is disorderly at best, and its portrayed that way. Acting is solid. Anthony Quinn's portrayal of the eccentric painter is full of energy, of passion and extremely believable. Ray Walston is his usual solid character actor, and his rendering of Basilio is so lovable. R.J. Williams, as the kid, shows a good performance, even though sometimes overacted. The photography is stunning, the supporting cast is extremely solid, and the script is easy to follow and understand. Only complain, is the editing, with some large leaps from one scene to another, that could get you lost if you haven't been keen on paying close attention. A beautifully symbolic piece, easily enjoyable, and perfect for a quite afternoon at home with your loved one.
