Andy Garcia is brilliant !!!!!
The music....breathtaking !!!!!
You will need a box of tissues for this movie !!!!

Amedeo Clemente Modigliani (12 July 1884 – 24 January 1920) was an Italian painter and sculptor who pursued his career for the most part in France. He was the bohemian artist par excellence - his posthumous legend is almost as famous as Van Gogh's. In stylistic terms he was an oddity: contemporary with the Cubists, but not part of their movement, he forms a bridge between the generation of Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art Deco painters of the 1920's.

    Andy Garcia is outstanding !!!!!

    It was tragic wasn't it Lisa....I would have liked to have seen an alternate ending....but I suppose that was his life as an artist..:(

    One awesome movie but so sad. It leaves you thinking about it a lot afterwards. Perhaps it because I'm an artist and hardheaded like him to a degree.

    Andy was so great.

    Have you seen Mona Lisa Smile with Julia Roberts?

    If not you need to.
