Quotes & Highlights
“We have met Pablo Picasso, protean artistic genius. We are familiar with Pablo Picasso, voracious devourer and discarder of women. Now please welcome Pablo Picasso, quipmeister par excellence. " —Charles Isherwood, New York Times
“One of the pleasures of A Picasso is that, as always, Hatcher is a master of clever dialogue.” —Jackie Demaline, The Cincinnati Enquirer
Written by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Gilbert Cates
Starring Roma Downey and Peter Michael Goetz
Set in 1941, during the German occupation of Paris, Picasso is secreted to a dusty underground vault where he encounters a beautiful young Gestapo art critic-turned -interrogator. The sexy inquisitor’s job is to get Picasso to authenticate three of his paintings amidst the vault full of artwork confiscated by the Nazis so that it can be publicly burned. It’s Picasso under pressure. Who will win this cat-and-mouse game?
