(Biography, Comedy, Drama - 2017)
Paris, 1964, Alberto Giacometti, the famous Swiss artist, bumps into his old friend, the American critic, James Lord and begs that he sits for a portrait because he has an interesting face.  Lord is flattered by the request and, as the days go by and turn into weeks and weeks seemingly with no end in sight, he realises his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius.  Veering between frustration and joy, Lord ultimately sees logic in the artist's chaotic mind and together we witness a genius complete one of his last masterpieces.
