Canvas, color, metal, ceramics. The centurys leading artist commanded them all. But what about the legendary Pablo Picassos other great passion? Was romance also dominated by his genius? Academy Award winner* Anthony Hopkins gives a full-throttle performance as the acclaimed artist in this masterful movie told from the viewpoint of Picassos longtime mistress (Natascha McElhone in a luminous film debut) and mother of his children Claude and Paloma. Director James Ivory, producer Ismail Merchant and writer Ruth Prawer Jhabvala reteam with Hopkins for the first time since The Remains of the Day in this lusty, sweeping saga. Joined by producer David L. Wolper (Roots), they draw from a vivid filmmaking palette to create an intimate, insightful tale of genius, beauty and obsession. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
