Movie Info

Gosta Eckman impersonates the famed Spanish artist Pablo Picasso in this gloriously irreverent Swedish "biography". The Picasso seen herein is a bumbling, vulgar clown, forever falling down, bumping into walls and spewing forth inappropriate profanities. The high (or low) point comes when an equally ridiculously caricatured Dr. Albert Schweitzer operates on a dying Picasso (a cute trick, since Picasso outlived Schweitzer by several years). You know what to expect when you see the aggressively masculine British comic actors Bernard Cribbins and Wilfred Bramball as, respectively, avant-garde poetess Gertrude Stein and her longtime companion Alice B. Toklas. Adventures of Picasso has its fans, though most don't immediately own up to liking the film.

    Already in his childhood, Pablo Picasso shows talent for painting and is sent to the Academy of Arts in Madrid. He becomes a painter but has to live in Paris in poverty. But one day he is discovered by a rich American millionaire and starts to earn money. But he wastes his talent by painting plates. He meets the famous people of the 1920s; Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Appolinaire, Hitler and Churchill.

    The life of Pablo Picasso. Not quite as it happened.
