Not particularly memorable

Super Reviewer

The use of incorporating actual paintings of Goya into the film help tell a rich story of a artist who lead a very interesting life of love and also displaying his biggest virtue which lead him into a lot of trouble in his work and life, the truth.

Felt like one of those movies you watch in high school to 'learn something.' Wasn't terrible but mostly forgettable.
