La Belle Noiseuse

La Belle Noiseuse

A Feature film by Jacques Rivette

Produced by George Reinhart Productions, Pierre Grise Productions

Release in France : 04/09/1991


    A renowned painter's ten-year hiatus comes to an end after becoming inspired by a young artist, and in particular the young artist's lover (Beart), who becomes the model for his return to the canvas. It's a slow, methodical exploration into the artistic process and the ensuing obsessions it brings for both artist and model. Rivette's brilliant direction makes this four-hour film a rich and rewarding experience.
