An artistic film about an artist
This is a three-parter TV film about the life of the famous Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani and it follows him in his movements from Livorno to Paris, in the period before, during and after the first World War. The film is very well made, with a lot of beautiful scenery and sets, and, though many of the frames are more artistic than all the paintings shown in the film, it's not an "artsy" film in the bad sense of the term. That is, it's not slow and boring,as is the tradition of a lot of Italian and french film-making. Instead it never has a superfluous moment, and the first-rate actors mostly give very good performances, specially Richard Berry, who plays Modigliani,is very effective in giving life to this fascinating character. Definitely worth watching, if you happen to catch it on TV.
