A useful overview
31 January 2004 | by lvbernardSee all my reviews

Perry Wolff's hour-long documentary on Matisse is a good, light overview of the great painter's life and career. The narrative is a little uneven, but the visuals more than compensate, featuring a cross-section of Matisse's works. If you enjoy documentaries and the arts, this will be time pleasantly spent.
