(Le mystère Picasso). In a style devised for this film about
his artist pal, Clouzot sets up a camera behind a translucent
surface, so that the maestro’s every painterly gesture is
recorded. Paintings emerge from the seemingly effort-
less frenzy of flourishes, some successful, some merely
a mimicry of Picasso performing himself—“superficial,”
he cries out at one point, then revises his failed work.
Now and then the director approves, to which Picasso
responds, “At least it’s a painting.” Winner of the Palme
d’Or at Cannes, this colorful glimpse of the seventy-
five-year-old Picasso captures the fecund nature of his
creative process, a spontaneous revelation of form in
continual transformation.
