The Artist and the Model
(El artista y la modelo, 2012, France, Spain)

In 1943 an old sculptor and his wife live in a small town on the border between occupied France and Franco's Spain. 80 year-old Marc Cros has not sculpted for years; disillusioned by two world wars, the artist has lost all faith in art, life and humanity. But when his wife Lea finds a Spanish woman, Merce, on the run from Franco's army and offers her the chance to live in the artist's studio, Marc inadvertently finds himself with an attractive young model for what will be his last sculpture. In the quiet of his mountain workshop the artist and the model talk simply and openly about life and the world around them. Slowly a beautiful relationship develops between the young girl, just starting out in life, and the old man who senses his end is approaching. Fernando Trueba (director of Oscar-winning BELLE EPOQUE and Oscar-nominated CHICO AND RITA) collaborates with legendary screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière to present this exquisite tale of a quest for beauty and artistic inspiration. Sumptuously shot in black and white by Cinematographer Daniel Vilar, and with captivating performances from Jean Rochefort, Aida Folch, Claudia Cardinale and Chus Lampreave, THE ARTIST AND THE MODEL is a delicately crafted contemplation on life, death and art that won Trueba the Best Director award at San Sebastian Film Festival.
