Nearly everyone is miscast in this disjointed and slow-moving portrait of Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani.

Movie Info

In early 20th-century Paris, Pablo Picasso (Omid Djalili) has already established himself in the art world, while his friend and artistic rival Amedeo Modigliani (Andy Garcia) is trying desperately to catch up. Modigliani's problems only increase when he fathers a child out of wedlock with the noblewoman Jeanne Hébuterne (Elsa Zylberstein). Now the starving artist needs to find the money to provide for his family, but relief may come in the form of the Salon des Artistes competition.

Critic Reviews for Modigliani

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (23)

  • Instead of trying to provide insight into this genius's debilitating madness, Davis prefers to wallow in incoherent and clichd misery, punctuated by poetically oblique imagery.

  • A film of vitality, with imagery as haunting and romantic as it is intense.

  • Modigliani is slow, shamefully cliched and disjointed as a cubist portrait.

    July 1, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Thanks to writer-director Mick Davis, the film, like its subject, dies young.

    July 1, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • It's hard to take this oddball movie seriously, right down to the undisguised streetwise-American accent of Andy Garcia as the Italian Jew Amedeo Modigliani.

    July 1, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • The best and maybe the only use to be made of the catastrophic screen biography Modigliani is to serve as a textbook outline of how not to film the life of a legendary artist.

    (May, 2005 Director: Mick Davis) WONDERFUL THOUGH TRAGIC! <div><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank"href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/andy-garcia-modigliani-modigliani-dvd--11800836"><img src="http://content6.flixster.com/photo/11/80/08/11800836_gal.jpg" border="0" /></a><div><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank"href="http://www.flixster.com">Flixster</a> - Share Movies</div></div>Do you love the Renaissance? This is a story of a cubist painter during the time of Picasso! It portrays the alcolism & poverty of those dedicated to their Art. This is a rare performance by Andy Garcia and an impeccable portrait of the life and times of a bygone era. Don't miss this one!! Deals with the real issues of life, poverty, alcoholism...harsh ending...NOT a "chick: flick despite the fact that one of the hottest men alive stars in this movie and what a role he has! The passionate but impoverished Modigliani hangs out with other cubist painters of his time, such as the very outgoing Picasso (Omid Djalili) whose largesse is legendary...great performances make this a worth see.
