Final Portrait

"This modest, extremely charming labor of love from writer/director Stanley Tucci is not intended for anyone who can't wait for the next Transformers. But if you're interested in Paris, art, the 1960s or any combination, it may be right up your alley. Geoffrey Rush and Armie Hammer excel." - Times

“Stanley Tucci takes up the role of screenwriter/director for the fourth time with this portrait of Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti — the toast of Paris in the 1960s — who persuades his friend, American writer James Lord, to sit for a portrait. It turns out to be his final work.

“Tucci splendidly captures the life of an eccentric, self-involved artist living la dolce vita with a doting wife, a young mistress and a coterie of monied sycophants. His cluttered atelier is exactly what one would imagine it ought to be.

“Geoffrey Rush is superb as Giacometti and Armie Hammer is very fine as the young Yank whose patience is tested by the artist’s pressing for just one more sitting or perhaps a few more. Tony Shalhoub is wonderfully droll as the artist’s sculptor brother, Diego.

“Tucci manages to make his rumination on the life of an artist slyly amusing and believable.” - Toronto Star
