Caravaggio

Directed by Derek Jarman

Hugely significant to Jarman, his biopic of the Italian Baroque painter with whom he strongly identified was developed over many years.

Sean Bean and Tilda Swinton deliver fine performances as the model and partner caught up in a complex love triangle with the famous artist, as Caravaggio struggles to reconcile the demands of authority (in the form of his patrons) with his own artistic and sexual needs – a tension then very close to Jarman’s heart.
