As mystifying and peculiar as his work, Rene Magritte painted in a style that was at once real and surreal, witty and disturbing. His enigmatic nature and amazing career deserve more than a routine documentary, and director Henri de Gerlache is up to the task. In this informative but unusual film, Charlie Dupont plays an actor hired to portray Magritte. He researches the artist's life and career, hoping to uncover his personality and unlock the meaning to his paintings. As the actor digs into Magritte's life story, we learn the highs and lows of the painter's career. The dramatic narrative is intercut with comments and interviews with art historians and experts, including photographer Duane Michals. A clever interpretation of one of the 20th century's most recognizable painters. English, French, and German audio options.
Henri de Gerlache---France---2009---52 mins.
