Movie Info

Director Henri-Georges Clouzot peers into the imagination of Pablo Picasso's studio and emerges with a quiet documentary that captures the revolutionary painter's creative process. Through a combination of stop-motion and time-lapse photography, Picasso's Cubist work comes to life on screen. Paint strokes and splashes of color appear as if by magic, as empty canvases become platforms for a series of daring and original drawings and paintings that exist only within the confines of this film.

Audience Reviews for The Mystery of Picasso (Le mystère Picasso)

  • Jan 15, 2011
    Fascinating doc that actually shows Picasso working on transparent canvasses. A nice insight into the creative process.

    Documentary showing Picasso doing his drawings with a felt-tip pen (or someting like it), encouraged by Claude Renoir (Renoirs grandson no less). A little bit like watching Rolf Harris at work ("Can you guess what it is yet?") but better... after all, it's Picasso. PICASSO!! Bloody fantastic. I was mesmerized. <img src="http://www.blockmuseum.northwestern.edu/block-cinema/images/fall%202010/MysteryOfPicasso.jpg">
