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

Instead of trying to provide insight into this genius's debilitating madness, Davis prefers to wallow in incoherent and clichéd 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.
Thanks to writer-director Mick Davis, the film, like its subject, dies young.
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.
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.
Just another artistic sacrifice to life's ironies, cruelties, and bad filmmakers.
No one expected a documentary, but serious art-history students may feel let down.
The real-life Modigliani did indeed live a short, tragic life, but this factually inaccurate, plodding film makes it feel twice as long.
It ain't pretty but you have a choisa: See Modigliani or rent Derek Jarman's Caravaggio instead.
Director Mick Davis shows little if any imagination in presenting the troubled genius or the remarkable Montparnasse art scene of the World War I era, and that's the real bummer.
Modigliani's problems lie in its contentment with superficial clichés
