I can only imagine that this movie is funny or touching to those who know the artist. I did not, however, and found the movie greatly lacking content, depth... and art.
What we see is only the very last part of Nikifor's life. We do not see his youth, how he got to be an artist, who inspired him, how he worked, nothing at all, no background is given. We hardly see any of his work, except during the closing credits. The actress depicting Nikofor makes him look surly, unlikeable and even dim-witted at times, and she does so with over the top acting, as if she is mainly focused on playing a male role instead of playing the artist.
Yes, this movie has won awards. But I can't imagine why. We get no insight into the character of Nikifor at all, and thus, it was a waste of my time.
