Overpaid modern artist needs muse. Perfectly normal girl is taunted by her suck-up photographer husband into taking the job. Artist tries to physically force the model to "be herself" so his work can be honest. Too bad. What is obvious to the audience in hour one of this foot-wiggler only becomes obvious to the artist and his model in hour four: The model and artist will only be happy when he lets his subject do her own thing.In the background, meanwhile, as in almost all literature about art and artists, REAL people do the artist's dishes, cook and clean for them. Those people deserve a movie. While the artist starts his scratching on paper at 10 a.m. ("Is that too early?" he asks the model), his house is already cleaned and breakfast has been cooked by the maid. There were two honest people in this film: one was the model's sister-in-law, who admits without shame that she doesn't understand "modern art" and the other was the REAL artist who drew those pictures. Only his hand showed, but it was amazing to see that passionate hand dipping pen and brush into pots of progressively darker inks. I recommend watching those drawing scenes in fast-forward mode. Four hours! Please!Mag
