Movie Info

FINAL PORTRAIT is the story of the touching and offbeat friendship between American writer and art-lover James Lord and Alberto Giacometti, as seen through Lord's eyes and revealing unique insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and sometimes the chaos of the artistic process. Set in 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, Lord is asked by his friend, Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, promises Giacometti, will take only a few days and so Lord agrees -ultimately wondering "how much longer can it go on like this?"

As a bit of art-house escapism, that it is a trip well worth taking.

Makes for a narrative with little consistent forward momentum and an anticlimactic ending, though the film remains agreeable thanks largely to Rush's flavorful performance.

In "Final Portrait," Stanley Tucci, directing his first film in 10 years, takes the biopic to an even more exquisitely homespun level of miniature close-up.

It's a delicate minuet. And Tucci, who gets fine performances from Rush and Hammer, manages to pull it off.

There are quite a few laugh-out-loud moments, a welcome deviation from a tale that can both depress you and inspire you.

A very interesting and suggestive film. [Full Review in Spanish]
