Film of Today - The Mystery of Picasso

The Mystery of Picasso, directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot.

It is supposed to be a new kind of documentary where Picasso is liked to a matador confronting the bull, when he approaches his easel.
There is no script as such, it was supposed to capture the moment and the mystery of creativity. I won't say it is a masterpiece, but it is a beautiful, even humble film of a simple collaboration between Clouzot and Picasso. A moment being in an artist studio and to be part of the process of creativity, even if none of Picasso's masterpieces were made in this film.
