Movie Summary

Released:
1986
Rating:
Not Available
Caravaggio, directed by Derek Jarman, is a biographical movie about the eponymous Italian painter. Caravaggio (Nigel Terry), closely guarded by his loyal servant Jerusaleme (Spencer Leigh) as he's close to death due to lead poisoning, starts recalling his life. The movie tells the story of the painter from his youth, spent in the streets living by expedients, to his last moments, going through the significant events of his life. Derek Jarman decides to focus on the relationship of Caravaggio with the priests who had taken care of him as he fell ill while young. The movie doesn't refuse to deal with the controversial relationship of the painter with Bishop Del Monte, who has been teacher and patron to Caravaggio, as well as he constantly harassed him while he was just a child. The sentimental relationship with Lena and Rinuccio, a couple of friends, lets the spectator investigate the sexuality of Caravaggio even more, as he grows up and gets rid of the cumbersome presence of the high prelate, not giving up his bisexuality.moreless
