Movie Info

Paris, 1964. Alberto Giacometti, the famous artist, bumps into his old friend, the American critic, James Lord, and begs that he sits for a portrait because he has an interesting face. It'll just take a couple of days in his studio. Lord is flattered by the request and as the days go by and turn into weeks and weeks seemingly with no end in sight he realises his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius. The portrait continues to ebb and flow. Veering between frustration and joy, Lord ultimately sees logic in the artist's chaotic mind and together we witness a genius complete one of his last masterpieces.

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

Top Critic

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.

This modest, extremely charming labor of love from writer/director Stanley Tucci is not intended for anyone who can't wait for the next Transformers. But if you're interested in Paris, art, the 1960s or any combination, it may be right up your alley.

Actor-turned-director Stanley Tucci's fifth movie is like an engagingly acted episode stretched into a feature.

A low-key drama of consistently high quality...
