Stanley Tucci, 2017 90 minutes Armie Hammer, Geoffrey Rush, Tony Shalhoub, Clémence Poésy, Sylvie Testud UK English 7 December 2017 Dutch Dutch premiere

Stanley Tucci (BIG NIGHT) takes a brief moment in the life of artist Alberto Giacometti and distils it into an amusing, sophisticated and insightful film about art, life and love, with Geoffrey Rush in superb form as the wonderfully contrary artist.

Paris, 1964. Alberto Giacometti, the celebrated artist, bumps into his old friend, a respected American critic, James Lord, and begs that he sit for a portrait because he has an interesting face. Lord is flattered by the request and as the days go by and turn into weeks and weeks seemingly with no end in sight, he realises his entire life has been hijacked by the erratic genius. Veering between frustration and joy, Lord ultimately sees logic in the artist's chaotic mind and together we witness Giacometti complete one of his last masterpieces.

★★★★ Het Parool- "Het door Stanley Tucci geregisseerde drama, met Geoffrey Rush in de glansrol van de Zwitserse kunstenaar, levert een geweldig inkijkje op in Giacometti's slopende artistieke zelftwijfel en chaotische privéleven".

★★★★ NRC - "Zo'n film staat en valt met de kwaliteit van artiest en model; Armie Hammer en Geoffrey Rush zijn een geweldig Kuifje en kapitein Haddock-duo".
