Garcia is brilliant
- Modigliani review by JD
I had never heard of Modigliani before this film and have since Wikipediaed him. A fascinating and tragic life well worth capturing in film. Andy Garcia plays him as an outrageously confident man, more appealing for it. Omid plays Picasso. I suspect their rivalry is invented for dramatic effect. Most of the rest of the plot however is genuine and covers most of the dramatic moments. This is in my opinion the fault of the film. By telling the story of his lifetime it dilutes the impact of each part. A whistle stop tour rather than an emotional journey. Some of the cafe scenes are poorly acted, some of the domestic disputes are awesome.
