"This is a sensitive delving into the works, and mind, of Joan Miro. He is captured by the camera exactly as one can imagine. He looks and sounds like the creative genius he is. He looks and sounds like a classic Catalan or Frenchman, like my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather: He speaks from a depth that seems genetic!
His world view grows from early days of starvation as an unknown artist, to the fame he received when Hemmingway bought his THE FARM. That set the fires going, and he created amazing creatures of art. He eventually is involved with theatre, set design, costuming, character (monsters) creation, and how he moves from the 2 dimensionality of painting to the 3 dimensionality of "on stage" and "creative consultant" is a model for any young artist, designer, or painter to view and be inspired.
I've bought many copies of this DVD for I believe it is important to share with young artists, fashion designers, and theatre and drama students.
I feel I have been taken by hand and walked from his poor youth to his dream of a BIG STUDIO coming to realization.
Most of the DVD is in his studio, a grand place, inhabited by his many friends!
It is like watching some foreign culture unfold...like watching Lamas chant and open the universe to everyday viewing!"
