Set in Paris in 1919, biopic centers at the existence of past due Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, that specialize in his final days as well as his contention with Pablo Picasso. Modigliani, a Jew, has fallen in love with Jeanne, a young and exquisite Catholic female. The couple has an illegitimate infant, and Jeanne’s bigoted dad and mom send the child to a faraway convent to be raised by way of nuns. Modigliani is distraught and needs money to rescue and raise his toddler. The answer arrives in the form of Paris’ annual art opposition. Prize money and a assured career look forward to the winner. Neither Modigliani, nor his dearest pal and rival Picasso have ever entered the competition, believing that it is below true artists like themselves. But push involves shove with the welfare of his toddler on the line, and Modigliani symptoms up for the opposition in a drunken and drug-brought on tirade. Picasso follows fit and all of Paris is aflutter with pleasure at who will win. With the stability of his dating with Jeanne on the line, Modigliani tackles this work with the hopes of making a masterpiece, and knows that every one the artists of Paris are doing the identical.
