Synopsis

Jarmanís most profound reflection on art, sexuality and identity retells the life of the celebrated 17th-century painter through his brilliant, nearly blasphemous paintings and his flirtations with the underworld. CARAVAGGIO incorporates the painterís precise aesthetic into the movieís own visuals, while touching on all of Jarmanís major concerns: history, homosexuality, violence and the relationship between painting and film. Starring Nigel Terry, Tilda Swinton (MICHAEL CLAYTON) and Sean Bean (THE LORD OF THE RINGS).
