Description

Oscar winner Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) delivers an exquisitely crafted reflection on the “big three” – life, death and art – in The Artist And The Model (El Artista y la modelo), co-scripted by the director and Jean-Claude Carriere and starring the ever-compelling Jean Rochefort in one of the title roles (the artist, not the model).   Marc Cros, an elderly sculptor, lives with his wife Lea in the south of France, safe from the War that rages in the distance. He seems to have reached the end of his life and of his art. One day, Léa gives shelter to a beautiful young Spanish political refugee named Mercè. Marc soon understands that the girl, who agrees to pose for him, inspires him and that he has no choice but to embark on this last artistic (and sensual) adventure.

“Highly seductive and exquisitely crafted. A film never anything less than a pleasure to watch.”   -Fionnuala Halligan Screen Daily.
