Movie Reviews

Interesting glimpse into the Matisse-Picasso relationship
Nessander | 12/24/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The French are not known for making great documentaries, as this eccentric but nevertheless interesting documentary shows. A Japanese, British or American production would probably have resulted in a richer, more informative and less idiosyncratic treatment of the fascinating relationship between these two great painters. Nevertheless, this documentary remains interesting and thought-provoking, and is aided by several interesting interviews with family members, friends and biographers. One doesn't learn terribly much about the art itself (some interviews with art historians would have really helped here), but one does learn something about the human dimension of Matisse's and Picasso's relationship. My wife and I both found it quite interesting and worth watching -- I just wish it included a bit more information."
