Movie Info

In the Paris of the 1910s, brash young sculptor Henri Gaudier (Scott Antony) begins a creative partnership with an older writer, Sophie Brzeska (Dorothy Tutin). Though the couple is 20 years apart in age, Gaudier finds that his untamed work is complemented by the older woman's cultural refinement. He then moves to London with Brzeska, where he falls in with a group of avant-garde artists. There, Gaudier encounters yet another artistic muse in passionate suffragette Gosh Boyle (Helen Mirren).

Audience Reviews for Savage Messiah

  • May 24, 2010
    marvelous, full of passion and romance at a breakneck pace, it's a great deal of fun and ultimately very moving. also contains what i would guess is one of helen mirren's earliest naked performances. RIP ken russell, enfant terrible.

    A lovely, entertaining film that only has occasional flashes of the baroque extravagance that later became Ken Russell's trademark. The actors spend most of the film shouting, but it seems to be faithful to the story (artistic temperaments, you know). According to the IMDB, the lead actor only appeared in four films (one of them made for British television). Interesting. And strange how obscure this film is today -- not even available on DVD? On the smutty side, the film boasts the phenomenally sexy hips of the young Helen Mirren (in full-frontal glory) and a director of photography named Dick Bush.
