Final Portrait – Don’t move
“Paris in 1964. Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush) is the one who decides when it is time for work, drink, doubt, destruction, flirtation or laughter in his studio. An established artist whose works fetch record prices, he hides his earnings in his studio. This is just one of the causes of many an argument with his wife Annette (Sylvie Testud), another being the fact that his mistress Caroline (Clémence Poésy) receives all his attention. His brother Diego (Tony Shalhoub), also an artist, is all too familiar with his idiosyncrasies. One day, Giacometti asks American art critic and biographer James Lord (Armie Hammer) to pose for him. But their sittings, scheduled to take a week, are frequently interrupted by visits to the bistro or long car rides, with no end in sight. Lord postpones his return flight several times.
This films peers into the workshop and personality of this famous Swiss painter and sculptor, two years before his death.”
