"It is wonderful to have Picasso on DVD and to be able to have still pictures of Picasso, I find this DVD too much abstract and isolated from the historic period of world wars, and the fascist movement and all the terrible things it caused many people to do loosing any sign of humanity.

Picasso was socially involved and all the great artists who create in this period felt their obligation to remember and to avoid this kind of actions. When someone is doing a documentary film on a twenty century artist I'm looking for the personal touch and to know the artist personally and not to feel being in a sterile laboratory. I didn't like the flow of this DVD it seem to me very fragmentary and suffering from lack of modesty, but still I recommend to purchase this DVD
and to remember that this is just a part of the whole picture."
