Synopsis: His passion was life. His obsession was art.
Andy Garcia brings to life artistic genius Amedeo Modigliani's story of tragic love, rivalry and excess in the midst of art history's golden age when greats like Picasso, Rivera, Cocteau and Modigliani held court in the salons of post-WWI Paris.
Modigliani's passionate life is also an existence that is filled with struggle at every turn. In love, he is faced with religious bigotry. The father of his love, Jeanne, a beautiful Catholic girl, opposes their relationship and sends their child off to a convent because Modigliani is a Jew. In art, he battles for recognition with none other than Pablo Picasso. Desperate to get his child back, he enters Paris' annual art competition, as does his rival, Picasso. With so much at stake, the artist takes refuge before their canvases, each of their destinies hanging in the balance.
