An exciting and unsettling cinematic journey through the life, work and torments of Caravaggio. Light and shadow, contrasts and contradictions, genius and intemperance distinguish his existence and his art.

The brilliant and controversial painter Michelangelo Merisi, a.k.a Caravaggio, seems
like a contemporary artist to me, a rock god or a film star whose excesses and foibles created
flaws and contrasts that appeared to contradict the truly superb artwork he created. Caravaggio
is unquestionably one of the most influential artists of the Renaissance. To this day, viewing
a Caravaggio is a sublime and unique experience, visceral and often violently beautiful.

His characters are so vital and palpable that you feel like you could smell them. He used real people as his models rather than aristocrats, clergy or courtiers, allowing us a direct and empathetic relationship with them. This documentary immerses us into the successes,
violence and beauty of the world of a beloved artist that will be remembered for eternity.
- Paolo Rotondo
