Surviving Picasso…

Surviving Picasso 1996 This could almost be a forgotten film, it’s not shown on any UK or US lists that I can find. In fact, I obtained my DVD copy from Youn Yong Woon in Seoul South Korea, and I feel I was very lucky in getting a copy. It features Anthony Hopkins in a portrayal of the world famous artist in his work and his lifestyle. It’s a well crafted and responsible film by James Ivory, unforgettably touching, dramatic and emotional and a very worthy vehicle for all of the talented supporting cast. Based on the book: Picasso “Creator and Destroyer” by Arianna Stassinopoulos Huffington it’s perfect in its artistic performance.
