Caravaggio

Feature Film UK 1986

For the twentieth anniversary of Derek Jarman's death, the TGLFF will pay homage to him by presenting one of his best loved films, recently digitally restored. An unconventional, surreal biography, halfway between Brecht and Ken Russell, in which Caravaggio's tragic and troubled existence is turned into a tableau vivant, where the past is decontextualised and pervaded by the present, thanks to the pictorial and theatrical staging. Lights and shadows of one of the greatest Baroque artists, a Romantic spirit ahead of his time, and an innovative painter. For his often religious works, the models he used were the poor people, prostitutes, criminals and outcasts with whom he lived, scandalising the ecclesiastical circles of papal Rome. The love triangle that bound him to gambler Ranuccio and his mistress, prostitute Lena (played by Tilda Swinton, Jarman's favourite muse), is portrayed up to its tragic, inevitable ending. Awarded a Silver Bear at the 1986 Berlin International Film Festival.
