A Picasso

 

Review


At the height of the German occupation of France, Pablo Picasso (Julien Arnold) is detained by the Reich’s agents and forced to confirm the authenticity of three of his drawings by a mysteriously sympathetic interrogator (Shannon Blanchet). What follows is a fascinating game of verbal cat-and-mouse: Arnold commands attention as the arrogant, sexist Picasso, while Blanchet expertly peels back the layers of her intricately-written character. Through quick, witty banter Jeffrey Hatcher’s script explores an easily-overlooked but highly significant aspect of the Nazi regime (ie their accrual of a huge collection of artwork), which opens up a captivating examination of the interplay between art, politics, war and sex. The setup is a little slow to start but a succession of plot twists render the payout eminently satisfying. —Mel Priestley
