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?"

  • It's always interesting to ask artists how they know their work is finished. Whatever else goes on this "Final Portrait," Tucci captures that struggle perfectly.

    April 19, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a most unstodgy movie about that dullest of dramatic premises, the Artistic Process.

    April 18, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Working from his own screenplay, Stanley Tucci (best known as an actor) delivers a character study that's low on character development.

    April 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • This movie is, literally, about watching paint dry - but Tucci and the cast find a world of detail and nuance.

    April 11, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The rare biopic of a visual artist that considers the dilemma of the art more seriously than it considers the drama of the life.

    April 6, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The story doesn't amount to much more than a hill of beans but Tucci manages to make his rumination on the life of an artist slyly amusing and believable.
